Partitioning for web/mailserver?
In short. I'm back to OpenBSD and for my purpose i have two hard drives. One is 120 Gb and the other 80 Gb. Both are Seagate Barracuda's. And the server itself is a AMD 3000+ with 1536 Mb RAM.
I was thinking of partitioning the disks something like this:
Disk 1 - 120 Gb disk
/ (root) (1Gb)
SWAP (1536 Mb)
/tmp (1536 Mb)
/var (remaining disk space)
/usr (8 Gb)
/home (5 Gb)
Disk 2 - 80 Gb disk
/var/www (remaining disk space)
SWAP (1536 Mb)
So, "mail" in /var and "the webs" in /var/www. I know its a lot of space for mail which probably never will be used. But what the heck! It could of course be an idea to make /var/www on the remainder of the 120 Gb, and /var on the remainder of the 80 Gb disk. I mean it will probably be more "web" then "mail" if you get my drift.
Any objections or other suggestions?
