I am using CENTOS 6.5 x86_64 + cPanel. Most websites hosted on this server will be wordpress sites and vbulletin forums. So there are many small reads and writes, and I need daily backups for these websites.
I would like to ask a similar question question. I am getting a new server with E5-1620v2, 64 Gbs Ram, LSI-7241-4i with 1GB Cachevault, 2x2 TBs SATA and 2x240 Gbs SSD.
This will be a shared server with mostly joomla and wordpress sites. I was thinking to transfer /var/lib/mysql to ssd and use the rest of ssd space as flashcache for the entire root filesystem. I was considering bcache and enchanceio as alternatives but with cloudlinux i am stuck with kernel 2.6.32.
Is LVM necessary? Do you have any partitioning scheme in mind?
