Currently I move the /home/ploi folder to any mounted volume (way cheaper storage solution) and symlink it. This works fine. I can host all my sites on block storage.

It would be great to be able to do this from the UI + have Ploi monitoring work (disk space for example).

This is somewhat possible without symlinks.

We are using relative paths /home/ploi/../../mnt/<somevolume>/sitename. Not ideal, but it works. In the nginx config we then strip the path to /mnt/sitename.

Hey!

In my suggested workaround you move and symlink the Ploi folder only once after provisioning. It works well and is all you need to do but it would be nice if you could do this from the UI and have Ploi monitoring keep an eye out on disk usage.

I'm not sure what you're doing. Can you explain to me the steps your taking. Happy to learn!

I have set this up with a symlink as described but now backups do not run. I receive the following error: "cannot create user data directory: /home/ploi/snap/aws-cli/123: Not a directory" Do you have any issues with backups?

I think Ploi just monitors the disk space of the system disk. Maybe we can have a setting to set which volume we would like to track. Maybe even multiple volumes. Or maybe just track whatever volume is mounted to /home.
