    Hello,

    My cPanel Dedicated Server installation shows /boot partition is 85% full out of 500MB which was partitioned at the time of CentOS installation.

    After 3-4 days of install i am getting notifications that the partition is full. I have been using some 15 VPS and 7 Dedicated servers which are using hardly 200MB of space, this is the first time i am getting this type of alert.

    The contents of the /boot folder is of below, let me know which files to delete or how to handle this situation.

    Code:
    root@falcon [/]# ls -lah /boot
    total 377M
