    The first partitioning scheme comes from our Quick-Start Installation Guide and the second partitioning scheme comes from our Advanced Installation Guide. I recommend only using the second scheme if you are familiar with managing so many partitions. Otherwise, use the first partitioning scheme.

    It is a good idea to have /tmp on its own partition in a shared hosting environment.

    Partitioning is typically done when installing your operating system. How to create or modify your partitions will vary depending on which operating system you use. Here is a link to the CentOS manual on creating partitions. If you're using CentOS or RedHat Enterprise, you'll probably be using 'disk druid' (dd) to modify paritions:
