[Webmin+virtualmin] Change /home to other partition

Hi All,


I am pretty new to linux/virtualmin/webmin/tomcat.

I have setup a new webserver which currently hosts 5-10 websites.








Now one of my websites has uploaded so much data, that the default homefolder location(/home) has used 100% of the available space.

More info:

Filesystem                      1K-blocks    Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3                         2922628  574032   2202116  21% /
udev                              5112444       4   5112440   1% /dev
tmpfs                             2048600     304   2048296   1% /run

/dev/sda5                         1495816 1420856         4 100% /home
/dev/sdb2                         1332188   52716   1212708   5% /tmp
/dev/mapper/vol_data-lv_var     101870948 1604140  95099628   2% /var
/dev/mapper/vol_data-lv_var_log   1459032  195272   1190648  15% /var/log


I want to move /home to:


How can I do that, and how can I make sure that all the websites keep running correctly?


Please help!
