I have a 40 BG hard drive for my VPS, why on earth would this be full. I have rotated logs but that has not helped much. The only account is 2.5 BG big.

Any thoughts? Is my VPS just too small.

Hello,

40GB is reasonably okay for a VPS with one website. You might check where the disk space is actually consumed.
Use this command to find the complete disk consumption :

# du -sch /*

If you find, for eg, /var reports higher disk usage give the following command

# du -sch /var/*

^ which would break-down and show the disk consumed in /var/ folder alone.

Likewise check which folder is consuming more disk space.

Hello :)

Yes, as mentioned in the previous posts, you will need to check to see what's taking up your disk space. The following document might also help:
