what are you trying to do? Why do you want to remove the fstab entry for /var? 
How do you mount /var on you primary system? When there is no /var, this 
system you also fail. 

As far as I understand your mail, you only want to duplicate /var/www, so so 
far there's no reason to remove the /var entry from your fstab. Unless you 
perhaps moved /var to your / partition ...?
