ext3 vs ext2 file systems

Good day,
I had to rebuild one of my partitions due to a strange error. I formatted the partition in ext2 fs. After I had the partition working again, I noticed that the other partitions had ext3 fs. WIll this be a problem? (havig one partition in ext2 and the others in ext3? What is the difference between the 2?
Thank You.

Shouldn't be a problem, but ext3 is a journaling fs. Which is better for data integrity.

thanks for the reply. I think I will continue to use the ext2 fs then.
its only a web server hosting local files. Do I need to close this post?

Thanks again.
