A bit off-topic, but I’m about to set up a remote Linux server
for Rails, with postgres and probably Lighttpd.
The server has two 120GB hard drives, one of which will just be
for nightly backups of the other.
I don’t intend to have any untrusted user accounts on the server.
The server will be dedicated to my own applications.
I’ll want to support lots of www clients, with pretty heavy database
Currently, I’m planning to just make a single partition for
everything, aside from the small /boot and swap partitions.
Does this seem reasonable? Or are there reasons I’d be better off
with multiple partitions, such as maybe the postgres database files
in their own partition?
Just figured I’d ask in case there were any “gotcha’s” I should be
aware of when putting everything in one partition.
Thanks for any thoughts,
