    I really cannot understand why / is full. I have ran du -s -h /*, it doesnt come up with anything.

    i cannot create new accounts, or anything, which isnt good :(

    Go on, have a guess
    Impossible to say. You're going to have to find what is taking up the space on your root partition (/) and remove/move it where possible. If you don't know how to do that you should hire a server admin to help you.

    thanks,

    i have an admin... but no sign of him lol (holiday)

    i know the commands to run... but they dont seem to work.. the du -s -h /* just seems to freeze after a few files, and i really need this command to work

    what other command or process could i use to determine the disk usuage?
