Hmm is there much point then in having /var separate? I have 300 users that need 200mb max space each. That's 60gb of user data if maxed out. The data will generally be in /var/db/mysql and /home Now if I was to have a 2gb /var, if it gets filled up by say half the users' databases, then there's half left whom will be unable to create databases since /var is full. That's why I want to put all if not most user data on one partition. If I put /home on /usr, I might as well just do the following and save any headaches... / 500mb swap 4gb /usr remainder Then /home -> /usr/home And /var -> /usr/var _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
