Yes /var needs to be a respectable size on a web server, I would even make it it's own partition, since apaches default HTML folder is /var/www

And if this is a LAMP server, keep in mind the location of the MYSQL Database. /usr/..../mysql/data

Based on your question That's my best guess at a response.
