Linux newbie - need to mount a hard drive with my pre existing file system and data o
I had a drive that kept kernel panic'ing so my data center recommended using the spare hard drive to reinstall OS on, and import the data from the old drive. (they checked the hardware, it wasn't the hardware)
The new install is done, and I need to mount the old drive and get backups off it since my data center does not provide management whatsoever.
It's the same OS on both (Cent OS 5.4 32-bit)
I'm an advanced user on windows, but linux gets me. I can ssh in, do basic stuff like setup IP ranges and restart services. I normally navigate the box through SFTP so I have a gui.
WHM shows me my drives as such
Found Disk: hda
Found Disk: sdb
so I'm assuming SDB is my old drive and the drive I need to access. I attempted to follow instructions on
but I'm assuming FreeBSD would work differently and I wasn't totally sure what the labels of the file systems should be.
Basically I'm stuck and I need a linux guy to help me out! I'd be willing to pay someone to walk me through this, it's urgent and I'm desperate at this point.
