Dear all,

i'm setting up a new machine to handle a webserver with mysql

web directory contains alot of small files and database is around 15 GB

i've did a bit research, read alot of articles..
mainly i came up with the understanding that:

EXT3 is the set it and forget it kind of filesystem.
and reiserFS is the best choice for small files though there's a bigger risk of data loss upon power failure (better solved in ext3)

any advice on this matter? or any other filesystem you advise me to use on a production system?

thanks
