    CPanel said that i was using 720MB space witch i knew was wrong so i checked what took up all my space ..
    The problem seems to be tmp/analog, its 675MB big ..
    I told my host and it seems he dont know how to fix it..
    So im wondering if anyone in here could explane it so that i can forward it to my host, or is it something i could do myself?

    Check for the size of the cache file within tmp/analog...if it's large you can delete it. If you've been with that host for a long time then analog makes large files...if you don't need stats from analog, delete the directory.

    Thanks for your reply.

    So its safe to remove tmp/analog or the cache file in it then..?

    There is no risk of damaging anything?

    No risk in removing the cache file. If you remove the analog directory, you will loose your analog stats.

    So if I ran a monthly cron job to routinely delete the analog cache files from all the hosted accounts on our server, what's the downside? I mean, the cache file must be there for a reason, right? :)

    Thanks.

    'No risk' maybe in the sense that it doesn't cause errors, but the effect of removing the cache file is (at the very least) that the 'Monthly Report' section loses ALL previous months reporting. And this is the single most popular section of the report for all my clients!

    IMHO, the 'remove the analog cache file' advice as a solution for reducing the storage needs of analog should only be dispensed with this warning. :)
