In your recommendation, would there be any need for LVM then? I'm doing a Ubuntu LAMP install, after install how would you handle all the smylinks you are talking about? I agree with your thoughts but am unsure how this effects your other partitions needed.
This is what I have now using LVM for the RAID5 drives:
$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 62G 227M 59G 1% /
varrun 1014M 48K 1014M 1% /var/run
varlock 1014M 4.0K 1014M 1% /var/lock
udev 1014M 96K 1014M 1% /dev
devshm 1014M 0 1014M 0% /dev/shm
34G 129M 32G 1% /home
/dev/mapper/data-usr 31G 364M 29G 2% /usr
/dev/mapper/data-var 138G 227M 131G 1% /var
The application we are producing is internal only via web browser. Using Apache2, PHP5 and MySQL5. My thoughts were to build 2 servers with Apache2 & any web services and 2 servers with MySQL for database services. One of each being production and development servers. This app will be used for about 300 users. In your opinions is this over kill? Or just do 4 servers each having Apache2 and MySQL on them, 2 production and 2 development?

I am over having separate partitions for the sake of it. You just end up
running out of space when you least need it.
I would suggest you just use the raid1 drives for the system, and
allocate the whole raid5 to /home and redirect things like /var/www to
I imagine the users are going to be users of the web application not
oh and btw, grsecurity doesn't work with dapper's libc very nicely.
We have actually repatched it and are testing a very of dapper's libc
that does work with grsec, but I doubt it will be widely available very
Partitioning is a very application specific choice, but I would warn
against too fine grained partitioning.
