I'm going to be setting up a new a server up soon, based on suse
enterprise server/novell open enterprise server. The server will be
dedicated to running moodle, an open source vle with apache2, php,
the server has 137Gb of space and a tape to backup onto
moodle consists of:
web files that live on /srv/www/htdocs
moodledatastore, this is where all the uploaded files go and also where
the repository sits. It can go anywhere but gets pretty big.
I was thinking of going with
swap 4GB (server has 4GB ram)
/moodle the rest
are there really advantages to giving /usr /var /tmp /home etc seperate
partitions for this sorrt of server also what is the best filesystem for
this sort of server?
on another server I keep on having to move stuff on to different
partitions as they keep filling up as the server starts to get used to
provide different/additional services
I've looked at a few partioning guides full of contradictions, so
thought I would try wolves :) any advice?
