Partition size
 
Hi all,

if you had 18GB for partitioning available, how would you size your partitions for webserver services?

Thx for your input! :cool:

/boot 50 - 100MB
swap 500 - 1000MB
/ the rest

why use the rest for / ?
if you have some logfiles which are growing rapidly you're system might crash/hang cause of insufficient disk space. I always make a /var partition. It's better to have a full partition then to have a full disk :)

But then I'd make a partition for /var/log instead of /var ;) because the MySQL database is normally under /var, and also the mailboxes if you use the mbox format.
