According to the documentation, Apache tries to hand static files to the kernel’s sendfile to serve files more efficiently, but the kernel’s cache causes issues when the filesystem is mounted over the network. For more information refer to Apache’s EnableSendfile documentation.

It is generally recommended to create separate partitions for your root (/) and home (/home) directories. This gives you the ability to do a clean install of your distro, or another distro, without putting your personal data at risk. Usually this works out pretty well.
There can, however, be a downside. Suppose you didn’t allocate enough space to your root partition, or you’ve installed way more apps than you thought you would. Suddenly your down to your last 100 MB, and apt-get upgrading to the newest release needs to download* 2GB of packages! What to do? Read More
