    Hi
    Do you recommend any other partitioning for a Centminmod simple forum server?

    Maybe a separated /tmp ?

    Thank you

    Depends on your requirements for your web apps, their backup/restoration routines and logging requirements. So only you would know the best partitioning arrangement :)

    If unsure it's good to have a large free disk spaced root / partition as is

    I am just wondering only about /tmp if it is better to have it separate in performance terms and is 8gb about a logical size?

    if you fix the size makes it harder to increase later unless you have some unallocated/unpartitioned disk space left over for resizes

    Ok but I/O performance will be better if it is separated and more secure ?

    probably doesn't matter these days if you're running decent SSD disks

    FYI, Centmin Mod out of box installs already lock down and secure /tmp :)
