Example cd /var/www/website
Make new dir ( mkdir storage)
Edit the /etc/fstab file to load the new volume whenever the instance is restart
add this to the fstab file
/dev/xvdg (dev mount point) tab2x then /var/www/website/storage tab2x ext4 tab2x defaults tab2x 0 0 thats 2 zeros with a space in between
Save the file
df -h wil show the mount points. the one we added to the fstab will not show yet
