Disk Partitioning for Cloudron
I'm planning to move my Cloudron from (single) VM to bare metal. While thinking about buying SSDs for the system, the question came up how the partitioning should look like? Do you have any thoughts about or experience with disk partitioning for Cloudron?
Any hint appreciated
To be honest I don't care at all about server partitioning since if something (like the drive) fails I have a full backup and can restore at any time.
Thinking of this, you could test out different partitioning schemas and if they end up being useless or you don't like it just restore a full backup.
Well, the thing is I'm using farely limited hardware with only two SATA-Ports. So, adding more space isn't that simple.
Anyone having experience with running Cloudron on a small home server?
I do that, actually. NUC style fanless device, Main drive is 500 GB, 2nd drive 2 TB (mostly media for Plex), backup drive is an external 1 TB harddrive. See https://forum.cloudron.io/post/29114
No partitioning, I use mounting in Ubuntu to specific mount points and Volumes / mounts in Cloudron
@necrevistonnezr Did you create a swap partition?
Some hosts don't automatically create a swap drive for you. If you are not too technical, it can be a bit challenging. It would be nice if Cloudron had a "one click, create Swap" equal to the available RAM.
Looks like it but I don’t remember if on purpose or as part of the Ubuntu Server installation - it’s quite some time ago that I installed Ubuntu Server on this machine
