I am planning a project to go online in a few weeks/months. What the setup is going to look like: -Droplet with openlitespeed WordPress (25GB for installation folders) -Managed Mysql database -Managed Redis cluster -Volume for WordPress media folder which should be upgraded easily by just increasing the size of the volume.
I have found something that walks you through the process of mounting the Volume and using it as the Media folder. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/moving-wp-content-to-block-storage-volume
The situation I want is the WordPress files are stored on the droplet SSD volume. And the media folder should be on the separate volume. “with the same path /wp-content/uploads.”
Any help is appreciated.

Hi there @Dylan192345,
Indeed this sounds like a solid setup.
To check if the folder is mounted correctly, you can use the
This will show you your available disks and the mount path.
To check if for a specific folder just run:
If you ever outgrow the available disk space, what you could do is, as WordPress stores the upload files at
/wp-content/uploads/YEAR, you could mount each specific year folder to a separate volume for example.
Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
