I would like to know, whow to modify properly the homedir of a user.
I already know about this command
usermod -d /home/peter peter
But now, do I have to create the homedir before? And what will happen to the old homedir? (I know about the -m option which would move the contents, but I don't want to move/remove the old content).
So for not removing and just leaving the old content, would I just have to use the command, exactly as I mentioned above?
I use Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS "Server".
