    Hi everyone,
    i would like to setup a new server with ispconfig. now i am not sure how to split the hddspace 76.2 GB. what is the advantage to make


    as partions?

    How would u do that considering the 76,2 GB available space?

    What I did on my system was

    /swap - set to double your memory
    /boot - 50MB
    / - The rest of available space

    I'd do it like that, too, except that I'd use 100MB for /boot. If you compile lots of kernels, 50 MB might be too small.

    Falko but what about "var" "usr" and "tmp"?

    Are you not afraid of temp files and log files? They can use a lot of space. It could be eaven DOS attack?

    Too many partitions make things complicated. Log files get rotated, and temp files should also be deleted automatically. I've never had problems with these.
