Im trying to nail down the recommended partitions for a basic cPanel installation. I just formatted my new CentOS 5 machine and was wondering if someone can double check to ensure that it looks ok. I've seen numerous threads about separating /var, /usr and /tmp. Code: [root@localhost tmp]# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda5 899G 1.3G 851G 1% / /dev/sda2 2.0G 36M 1.9G 2% /tmp /dev/sda1 99M 17M 77M 18% /boot tmpfs 2.0G 0 2.0G 0% /dev/shm [root@localhost tmp]# cat /etc/fstab LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1 LABEL=/tmp /tmp ext3 defaults 1 2 LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2 tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0 devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0 sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0 proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 LABEL=SWAP-sda3 swap swap defaults 0 0 As you can see I've separated /tmp from the main partition however I didn't see the need to actually separate /var and /usr. Is there a particular reason that I should or does my default setup look ok and I can continue to install cpanel?
