I am attempting to build a webserver with Ubuntu 6.06 and have some questions about partitioning the hard drives.
The system has 1Gig of ram and two 80 gig sata drives which Ubuntu discovers perfectly.
At this time I don't want to attempt software raid but I do want all the OS and applications on the first drive and all websites on the second drive.
I have set it up so that
#1 Primary 50 MB B F ext3 /boot
#2 Primary 3.0 GB f ext3 /swap
#3 Primary 76.9 GB f ext3 /
#1 Primary 80 GB F ext3 /
Is this the best way for what I want or should I be using /var or /home partitions too? Have I over complicated it? should the swap reside on the OS partition or the data one?
I expect one website on sdb to be between 10 and 50 GB and the remaining space for any other sites I care to host.
Thanks for any help
