Alright, so am building a webserver that will be using mysql, nginx, php, and a few other things. I expect the database to grow quote large and there will be many small files that will be served by the webserver, less than 1-2mb downloads. I have two 1.5 tb sata HDD's and 350 gig sata hdd, the mobo has enough sata ports to plug them all in.
I'm looking for some advice on how to partition this thing. I am using cfdisk. If its just going to be a webserver, do I need a large /home directory? I want to use a different faster fs for the /var dir as per the archlinux recommends. I'm not exactly sure where nginx or apache will store the files. So do I need a larger root directory? I know in arch the webserver files are locate in /srv plus I will eventually have a large database.
I wouldn't even mind a raid setup using the two 1.5 tb hdds and then using the 350gig hdd for the os. Any recommendations on how to partition everything?
