    Re: how can I add more hard drives to my server?

    Again Bab1 didnt you read what I posted before 160gig is where I got the owncloud/os server stuff and I am just adding 3 more hard drives to the system to add more storage. I do not want to add any external sites to my owncloud period for more storage that is why I 3 more hdd to add more storage. Basically its going to come down to is that I want to add more storage for Owncloud for my customers.

    I just tested it with ownCloud 5 and it worked as expected.

    If you want to keep expanding the storage avalible to owncloud, you would be better off looking for a way to pool the disks together. LVM can do this.

    Otherwise you will have to create mount points for each new drive and partition and format them, then add the path to owncloud.

    See here, about half way down the page, to see what you need to do to partition and format the drives:
    http://zackreed.me/articles/38-softw...ian-with-mdadm

    Code:
    sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb
    GNU Parted 2.3
    Using /dev/sdb

    (parted) mklabel gpt 
    (parted) mkpart primary 1 -1
    (parted) align-check                                                      
    alignment type(min/opt)  [optimal]/minimal? optimal                       
    Partition number? 1                                                       
    1 aligned
    (parted) quit
    Code:
    sudo mkfs -t ext4 /dev/sdb

    It doesn't matter if the drive is sata or ide, they all show up as sdXY in the newer versions of Ubuntu.

    Judging from your fdisk, sdb does not have any partitions on it, and neither does sdc.

    so do the formatting like you said on about 3 hours ago by this:


    Code:
    Code:
    
    sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb
    GNU Parted 2.3
    Using /dev/sdb
    Welcome to GNU Parted! Type 'help' to view a list of commands.
    (parted) mklabel gpt 
    (parted) mkpart primary 1 -1
    (parted) align-check                                                      
    alignment type(min/opt)  [optimal]/minimal? optimal                       
    Partition number? 1                                                       
    1 aligned
    (parted) quit
    
    Code:
    
    sudo mkfs -t ext4 /dev/sdb
    then should I make an directory for these drives for owncloud?

    Yes. Create the directory and mount the drive there then follow the instructions here:
