I need a bit of advice with SoftUpdates please...
Ive searched the web but couldnt find specific answers.
I work for a Web Hosting Company and we are setting up a FreeBSD 4.7 Server
for MySQL Server Database Hosting.
As a Hosting company we are obviously looking for maximum uptime,
reliability, performance and stability of our systems.
We have a new server ready to receive a Fresh Installation of FreeBSD 4.7i
and so I would like to get this right at the installation phase.
My Question is this - How reliable are SoftUpdates and for which partitions
is it suitable to enable this.
e.g. is it Safe to use SoftUpdates on my / partition (think I read something
somewhere advising against this) and how about my /var partition (where my
mysql db's will be stored) and are there any downsides to this.
