April 30, 2017 1.7k views
DigitalOcean CentOS

I installed 1 GB of memory / 30 GB disk + 200 GB / FRA1 - CentOS 7.3.1611 x64 with vesta driver

The default domain of the vesta is:

After uploading the data to /home/admin/web/, vps reports the amount of space to upload.

But I bought an extra 200 GB

I was searching for the article in google seach and i was reading and i followed but could not make it up to 230GB

The 230GB block is not in the directory: /home/admin/web/

Now I need your help

How do I upload 230GB to /home/admin/web/ with vest control

Please show me how to install it

Hi @batdongsankim

It's not as easy as a couple of clicks, since block storage gives you a lot of flexibility.

You will not be able to get 230GB, but your server can use the 30GB and then you can attach/mount the 200GB for your WordPress files.

There is a tutorial to getting started with block storage:

DigitalOcean Block Storage volumes provide an easy method of adjusting the storage space available to a Droplet. After creating and attaching a volume to a Droplet using the DigitalOcean control panel or API, the raw storage space must be partitioned, formatted, and mounted before it can be used. This guide will cover how to complete these steps when working with volumes.
