I am setting up an ubuntu server to be used for experimentation, testing and learning. Basically with LAMP and then setting up WordPress and most likely Drupal. I also plan to experiment with setting up a home intranet. This system will not be serving over the Internet.
My desktop has a fairly standard /, swap, /home partitioning scheme. Would this be an adequate scheme for the server as well? Or would it be beneficial to do something fancy like creating separate partitions for /usr, /var, /tmp, and /home?
I'll probably wind up doing things like corrupting MySQL and having to start over while on my learning curve. Also, I have 2 drives and plan on setting up with software RAID0 if that matters.
