    Hi, I'm going to work with ispconfig 3.3 on centos 7 minimal... I've bought the ISP manual, very well made but I need a suggestion, please.
    I've a server 60GBssd + 2x500GBsata and I'd like to install O.S. and ISP on 60GB and sites data (web, mysql, mail) on 1TB (2x500)
    1) I'll do a remote daily backup (I'll host production sites), what could be a good choice to merge 2x500: mdamd (raid 0) or LVM (not raid but volume)?
    2) Could be a good procedure, the following?
    - centos 7 on 60GB ssd
    - create a single volume (or raid) 2x500 = 1TB
    - copy /var folder (with permission) from 60GB to 1TB and make this entry permanent (fstab) example: /dev/md0(1TB) /var ext4 defaults 0 0
    - install ispconfig on 60GB ssd
    Thanks very much

    i would not store the OS (and ispconfig) on a SSD and use a sata for web + databases. If size of your websites and databases is < ~50 GB, store them on the ssd and use the hdd for the rest.

    Why copy /var? Put it on the second disk during install right away...

    Because I've a server (remote, unmanaged) with preinstalled OS (at my choice) but I think I can't control partition & C. during installation. I'll give it a look. thanks
