    hi there
    I got a providers provided my server with the following whm/cpanel

    I have been using vps cpanel and usually I get a larger main large partition with /home /backup /tmp all together

    how new dedicated server with the following setups . is it more optimised for cpanel ?

    I still prefer combining /backup /home /tmp together

    any suggestion ?

    Hello :)

    The recommended partition setup is documented here:

    cPanel Installation - Partitions

    Note that your /backup location should be a separate partition.

    Thank you.
