Hello!

I have tried some other distro to use as a webserver and now I want to test SMS.
I have a HP N40L with 16GB RAM.

I download SMS.Native.CD-2.0.4-Install.iso

When I make the swap I read this
Create a swap partition, usually twice your RAM, but 2GB is enough.

Should I use 2GB or 32GB (twice my RAM)


Should I use the rest of the disk for root or should I create another partition for my www folder?

It is possible to update the system from webmin or do I have to do it like the video?

Thanks!

Hello,
with 16GB RAM you might not need a swap at all, but in any case 2GB is more than enough, and you should use SMS64 (64bit), as 32bit would see only 4GB of RAM.

You can partition you disk according to your needs, if you are going to have big mysql databases or big size websites you can use /var as a separate partition, or even /srv (point to /var/www)
Creating separate mount points for var or srv has to do with backup and migrating mostly in a case of upgrade or server switch, but it's you choice...

To upgrade SMS you need the terminal, but you shouldn't have big problems as package upgrades are compatible for at least a year, so upgrading security fixes do the job unless you want to upgrade the kernel, which need a few steps more...
