Hi there @AnoopKakkur,

I wouldn’t recommend mounting your root partition on the block storage.

Instead, I would suggest mounting your working directory to the block storage, for example, if you are storing your project at /var/www/html mount that specific folder. You can follow the steps on how to do that here:
