Default Partition size

Hi all,

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

Thx for your input!

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.
