Post Partitions on Disk ?

Hi,

I want to install ISPConfig in the next days.
Interessting, in which places the most data storing in ?

Think, that's in /var - right ?
Ive read the howtos about installing on a debian sarge system,
and now install all data in /var/www and mail (postfix) ist quite
in /var/mail.
Are there other things exp. in /home, that I forgot ?
Thanx - TOMmie

That depends on which document root you specify during ISPConfig installation that ISPConfig should use for creating new web sites. E.g., if you specify /var/www, then web sites will be created in /var/www/web1/web, /var/www/web2/web, ...
Emails will be stored in /var/spool/mail, if you use mbox format, or in /var/www/web1/user/web1_<username>/Maildir for example, if you use Maildir.
Generally it's a good idea to use /var/www as document root, because suExec on Debian is also compiled with that document root which means you have suExec available for your web sites.
You can then have a /var partition, or yyou put everything in a huge / partition - that's up to you.

Hi,
Thanks for the really fast answer.

> if you specify /var/www, then web sites will be created in
> /var/www/web1/web, /var/www/web2/web, ...
> Emails will be stored in /var/spool/mail, if you use mbox format, ...

Nice to read, what I want to hear about

suexec ist one thing, but the first are the quotas. I Can't set quota on my root-fs. When all the stuff is stored in /var thats quite a nice thing to set it up.
