I've order a dedicated server which will have 2x1TB hard disks. I'd like a little help though on how I should partition the disks.
Everything will be setup using software raid1 (mdadm) and all of the user data will reside in
/home (this includes apache2 website files alongside everything else). I was thinking about something like the following:
- 4MB bios_grub (since I'll be using a GPT)
/boot(just because - yes I know that it's too much)
/(this will include
/var(logs, mails, others)
- 8GB swap
What do think? I may be assigning less space to
/var/lib/mysql since we don't expect to have lot's of MySQL databases (I even think that 10GB will be more than enough for our needs).
What would you change and why?
