Help with BuyVm Storage Slab

dustyboidustyboi Member

Hope yall are doing fine.
So i have a vps at buyvm and I bought a 256GB storage slab for it. I mounted the storage slab to the vps in the stallion control panel. Them using TightVNC i logged in the server and partitioned the drive and mounted on mount point /data. I used this tutorial to do so. []

everything is fine until the last step when i run the command
/dev/sda1 /data ext4 defaults 0 0
it give me a permission denied error. How can I fix it.

Also, I have directadmin and softaculous installed on my vps. I installed it before i had bought storage slab so all the data is stored in the 40GB storage that came with the VPS. I have 2 websites running on wordpress which i installed using softaculous. Now I want to know how to store the data that i upload to my wordpress websites in the storage slab. Thanks a lot :)


  • You need to add that line to a file called /etc/fstab - it's not a command.
