    recommended partioning on CPanel server with 80GB harddisk

    What partitions would you recommend on a Red Hat + CPanel server with a 80 GB drive ?
    I will use it to host multiple sites.

    I was thinking about going with just 1 big partition, since I have 80GB space.

    Or should I make partitions for /usr /var etc?
    I'm not sure how large the partitions should be in my case (CPanel)

    What would you recommend?

    I recomend you putting the actual OS on a seperate Partition just incase the 80GIG HD get's full from over selling your server will not freeze up and crash, i accedently did that back when RH6.0 Was out and i did one big partion on a 4GIG / and that did not do to well once It got full.

    WebHostManager Help says as follows.


    We recommend the following partition scheme:

    /boot 35 Meg
    /usr 2048+ Meg (If you have a 60 gig drive try 4096 for /usr, 5000 if you have an 80 gig drive, etc.)
    /var 1500+ Meg
    /tmp 1024 Meg
    / 1024 Meg
    /home grow to fill disk
    swap 2x memory size
    If the server has a 80GB HD and 1GB RAM , I think the following.

    /boot 35MB
    /usr 5000MB
    /var 4500MB
    /tmp 1024MB
    / 1024MB
    /home the rest
    swap 2GB

    Please correct me if I am wrong.

    The most important is that the /usr ist big enough, otherwise you need to move+link and/or delete Files. My Motto is: Better to lose Space on /home as to have Anger on /usr and so maybe have Anger with Customers.

    I think You need to increase /usr a little bit.
    On /usr partition you will have all apache logs etc.

    /boot 50MB - No need to cut space so dramatic - allow a couple of kernels and a bit extra.
    /usr 6000MB
    /var 4500MB
    /tmp 1024MB
    / 2000MB
    /home the rest
    swap 2GB - depends on OS+ kernel but 128-512MB may be more than enough.

    and /backup 80GB would be really nice

    I'll go with this setup.
    Thank you all for the advice!
