Just wondering

For those of you that host your own website (company site, etc), how
large is the folder structure for your site on your webserver compared
to services offered, # of people that work there (if that's relevant),
how many publish, etc etc?

I'm just curious as we host our own site (wwwDOTccgovDOTnet). Have
~600(ish) people here, only a handful publish & we are a local county
gov't.

Our website structure on our webserver is currently almost 1.5GB. To
me that seems a bit excessive, but I could be wrong, it *has* happened
before.

Did that, *lots* of files, although the *vast* majority are legit files
associated w/ our web page.

Re: Just wondering

Have one subfolder in there for our questys app, that's by far the
largest folder at almost 1GB. Don't think we can get rid of that one
tho, as that questys app does a/v 'streaming' & archiving of our
commissioner meetings.

Guess we're just to have a bloaded web page............sigh

Eh, just delete them, nobody will notice....<eg>

Barring that...you could think about some archiving to offline storage.

Don't think we really could archive this stuff, seeing as how it's
served out by apache.

Well in all honesty, 1.5GB for 600 users probably isn't that bad.
Look at the size of disk drives now! I mean you could stick your entire
website on a thumb drive.

True, I just wonder how big it will grow. Bad thing is, it needs to be
backed up, and the backup software just grinds to a halt on that server.

This server was recently converted from a novell phys box to a VM. Not
requesting support, just commenting.

One of the reasons I haven't jumped full on into virtualization.
The management/backup tools are improving but...
I am using rsync to backup one of my VM's. Basically it gets put in
suspend, rsync runs and then it gets brought back online.

Seems to work and doesn't take a lot of downtime after the initial run.
Might be harder in a website scenario, although I'm sure there is some high
dollar solution for it via VMotion or something.

Yeah, we use backupexec for M$ (I know, I know), and we can get a
complete VM backup of it while everything is running.

Just can't do a file level backup for whatever reason.
