First off, cagefs-skeliton is part of Cage File System and that's CloudLinux, not cPanel. Secondly, /var/lib/mysql is where all the MysQL databases are stored, so there is prob. not too much you can clean up.

Hopefully that gets you going in the right direction.

That would indicate the usage is all real and inside the MySQL directory. The only other thing you could do would be to check and ensure it's not the error log file taking up a large amount of space, as that could be cleared, but there isn't a way to shrink the MySQL data itself.

I'll respectfully disagree with @cPRex. It really depends on the storage engine. If it's innodb, then I agree that it's difficult to clean up space. if it's MyISAM and you can clean up tables, then you can optimize tables and reclaim space. As an example, we've seen Drupal sites with huge watchdog tables (where Drupal logs errors). Depending on the storage engine those can be truncated (by the client) to free up space.
