Partition scheme on a Dell Poweredge T410 server for LAMP, samba and mail
I've been using linux for 10 years as of now but always was a desktop user. The thing is that now I must assembly a small server on my company and decided to ask sugestions to the best, meaning the LQ users.
The server has four main purposes as of now:
1) Provide file share through the network (Samba)
2) Host our website (LAMP); and
3) Our e-mail
4) Host a mysql base application that I'm developing.
The server is a Dell Poweredge T410 with Intel Xeon 5600 series, Two 1TB hitachi sata 2 hd in RAID 1 via sas i6R and 8 GB Ram (The best we could afford).
I've decided to use gentoo which is my favourite flavor of linux and designed the following scheme partition:
1) /boot 100mb ext2
2) /swap 16Gb linuxswap
3) / 100gb ext4
4) /var/mail 256gb ext4
5) /var/lib/mysql 256gb ext4
6) /home 256gb XFS
7) /tmp 16gb ext4
But since I'm a server-newbie-kinda-guy I realized asking would be better prior to start partitioning. Thanks in advance for all the helpers I'm sure will show up
