    Hi

    I would like to know the best partition for my 73Gb harddrive.
    /home does contains all user data for cPanel and should be the biggest ?

    Thanks

    According to the CPanel installation guide (http://cpanel.net/install.html), the folling is recommended:

    --------------------------------------
    001 GB /
    050 MB /boot (No seperate /boot for FreeBSD)
    001 GB /tmp
    010 GB /usr
    007 GB /var
    001 GB swap (swap should be 2x RAM)
    Remaining space to /home
    ------------------------------------------------

    I have an 80GB drive and changed /usr to 20GB and /var to 14GB. The remainder went to /home.
