Linux CentOS 6 partition problem

Hi,

I have a Linux CentOS virtual server where I have 20GB system drive (sda) and 20GB data drive (sdb). I installed Apache and MySQL as well as PHP.
What I want to do is to use data drive (sdb) for my website files and don't save them on system drive.
As I understand when I installed Apache it was installed on system drive which means all website files I use will go under Apache directory.
Is it possible to have Apache installed on system drive and website files on data drive (sdb) and Apache to see them?
I am not a big expert in Linux.

Please let me know if it is possible and how I can achieve it.

Thank you.

In httpd.conf or your virtual hosts file just change your DocumentRoot path to where it should be pointing

Then look for <Directory "/var/www"> and change the path there as well (the path maybe different)

If you don't know where httpd.conf is then do
locate httpd.conf
And it will show you the location.

Usually, the locate command won't find much until updatedb has been run (which requires root level access).

I assume you mounted sdb, e.g. as /mnt/data

Stop Apache
Move the /var/www (or whatever) directory to /mnt/data:
mv /var/www /mnt/data/www
ln -s /mnt/data/www /var/www
Start Apache
