I will be using my cpanel server to host one website that will be a video sharing website similar to youtube. I would like to know if what I write below is a good idea.
Install CentOS 5.7 (64 bit) with Cpanel on the 60GB SSD (solid state) hard drive but while installing Cpanel I want to set the home directory to use my RAID 10 drives. I have four 2TB hard drives which are giving me 3.8TB in total. I also want to make sure that mysql stays on the SSD drive too.
I want to use those large hard drives to store the home directory since the user account that will be hosting the video website will also be using their home folder to store the videos that will be uploaded as well as streaming.
If this sounds like a good idea, can you tell me the commands to format and partition my hard drives? I already have the RAID 10 setup and the SSD also. Basically the system sees 2 disks, the SSD and the RAID 10 array.
