i am currently trying to ensure i have partitions setup correctly for a new cpanel server.
In the past i have had issues on other servers with both /tmp and /rootfs becoming full.
my hosting provider is ovh and i am using their reinstall option to try and do this.
the issues i have are that i do not fully understand the linux file system in terms of mount points and partitions.
I have the following guidelines Advanced Options: Pre-Installation which i have read through but i am really stuck when it comes to making the actual partitions
so within ovh i created /boot with 250MB of space then / with 40GB of space
i then added the first folder i know i needed to ahve mounted somewhere other than rootfs which was /usr with 25gb of space
after this i get a message show up which says
So should i be using logic partitions?
Attention: your partition layout contains 3 primary partitions and you still have free disk space.
The limit of disks allows you to have only 3 or 4 primary partitions and as many logical partitions as you wish. To use all available disk space, you may:
create the last primary partition using all the remaining space
create as many logical partitions as you wish (subject to disk space)
My other question is if i have managed to setup the /usr and /var as seperate partitions do i then need to do something during the cpanel install to make them use this part of the drive rather than the normal path which i think was within /root
all in all very noob about this so thanks in advance for the advice.
