I agree with Sam Simon Nasser.
Just moving the data is what is needed, (be sure nginx/lighttpd/apache has access to the target directory, that step isn't shown in his link).
Following that recipe use /STORAGE on all places that mention /mnt/owncloud

chmod 775 /STORAGE
chown www-data:www-data /STORAGE
(in stead of www-data it might need something else, please check the owner & group of the original. /var/www/html )

Moving all of /var/www will a bigger effort with nginx/lighttpd/apache configs.

Hi,
Step1. mount  the new harddisk. make the entry in fstab.
step2. create a folder in the HDD.
step3. copy all the contents from owncloud location to new location.
step4. delete the owncloud folder
step5. Create a symbolic link to new hdd location.
step6. restart the webserver.

The following link is an example for another application.

@Prabhin,

Splitting the data away from owncloud has some more benefits, like not offering a backdoor to the data.
so your solution does provide some consolense, and might replace it with an update headache.
If moving the whole tree, then it would be better to move the /var/www somewhere else according to your method.
