    Hey dudes,

    comming days we take our new server into production
    Dual Opteron 275HE
    4GB DDR
    4X 160GB SATA HD (RAID 5)
    2 ip's
    CentOS 4.x
    cPanel

    Now my question is, how can I maximize this server.
    Wich software should I realy install for security, spam fighting, ...
    For partitioning I was thinking for this setup
    /boot 100mb
    /swap 4GB
    /var 1000mb
    / all the rest

    Or any other sugestions?

    If you're not sure about security and what to install, I highly recommend you hire a Server Admin to do this for you. Don't skip the most important step in having a successful server.

    Hey Ramrage,

    offcourse, maybe my question wasn't clear.
    I mean more about extra software that is usefull to use on a cPanel server, extra scripts, I dunno, maybe specific tweaks in php or apache, I'm always in to learn usefull things.
