Mounting that partition read only would restrict the changes to the site no? /dev/wd1a /var/www/sites ffs rw,noatime,nodev,nosuid 1 2 Unless you can have two different mount point to the same partition? Never tried it and always assume it wouldn't be possible anyway. Like: /dev/wd1a /var/www/sites ffs rw,nodev,nosuid 1 2 /dev/wd1a /var/www/siteswrite ffs rw,nodev,nosuid 1 2 Can this be done and if so, any drawback to it? So, you configure httpd.conf to use the /var/www/sites, the logs portion of httpd to use /var/www/sites/logs mounted softdep and then /var/www/siteswrite for you to use to change the files on the sites? I don't know, does it really make sense?
