RPS issues

I would NOT use CPANEL on an RPS......

Even a Basic Kimsufi would be better than an RPS, CPANEL writes loads to the HDD in Logs etc. every second.

You will notice cpanel is very slow on RPS.

I find 5 partitions quite odd. Did you get that with one of our installations by default? Which one? I've just checked with Ubuntu Desktop I've got 2 paritions (/ and /home).

In any case, Andy is right, just reinstall the server and choose your own partitions.

If you have 5 partitions then simply use the reinstall feature in the Manager and setup your own partitions. The partitions you see currently are recommended defaults for novice linux users. If you feel you know how to setup the partitions yourself then go ahead and do it on the reinstaller in the Manager.

RPS's sometimes have iSCSI errors when booting, try a hard reboot in the Manager again and wait around 15 minutes for a ping before giving up before rebooting again. 1 in 10 reboots apparently don't work from what I've read here in the past.
