    The documentation says
    so for an 80 GB drive this would translate to:
    Can someone run down what is stored in eacn partition?

    I take it the bulk of web site data is stored on the /home partition?

    Where is mysql data stored?

    Logs for each web site?

    also: best use of second hard drive

    Also in conjunction with the above question, if I have a second 80 GB drive, what is the best use of this drive for performance and security in addition to using it for backups?

    Should I move mysql data to the second drive for example and will this create any problems for cPanel? Or is there a better use of the second drive? How will this impact the default partitioning layout and sizes I should choose?

    I believe the MySQL files are in VAR.
    My system has the /home and /var placed on a RAID-5 and
    /
    /root
    /boot
    /backup

    located on a single drive which is not part of the RAID-5 HDs.
