Yes, I guess so. Because to me it looks like a normal disk, doesn't it?

Using UUID's are better than using device names. Get the UUID of your device with the blkid command.

comment Apache server is very slow taking minutes to respond
You have to find the bottleneck. Configure apache to disable dns lookup and enable debug loglevel, try to use http first, look at your system's network connections (netstat), list open files (lsof), check server load including cpu, i/o and ram usage (top).

comment Permanently Redirect Subfolder Blog to Subdomain on Another Server
Technically: joesexample.com and www.joesexample.com are two different websites. You should have the ability to create an alias (ServerAlias) in the apache config and create another rewrite rule below this one that will redirect joesexample.com to www.joesexample.com. I hope I'm making myself clear.

I cannot prove the answer so I guess it's right. However I don't understand why access.log.3.gz is still present.
