    I just recieved my new Dell 1950III
    specs are
    PowerEdge 1950 III Rack Server:
    2x Quad Core Intel Xeon E5410, 2x6MB Cache, 2.33GHz, 1333MHz FSB
    4 GB FB-DDR2 SDRAM 667MHz Dual Ranked (4 DIMMs)
    2x 146 GB SAS Hard Drive 3.5(15K RPM)
    1 PERC6i SAS RAID Controller, 2x4 Connectors, Int, PCIe, 256MB Cache

    My original plan was to use raid 0 with running offsite backups, but after a little research, i think this may not be the way to go. The primary use for this server is hosting open source dev websites, primarily phpbb and integramod. Both make heavy use of php/mysql.

    My question is what is the best setup for this type of server and and what is the best performing hd partition scheme?
    The server will run Centos64-bit. I currently have a CPanel license, but Im looking at possibly running DTC for this server. (http://www.gplhost.com/software-dtc.html)
    Any insight is appreciated

    I'm sorry, but there's no best partitioning scheme - it's totally up to you.
