    Hi,

    I setup WHM CPanel on Amazon AWS. When trying to update WHM it will not do it, error "cPanel & WHM cannot update due to insufficient disk space in the staging directory, '/usr/local/cpanel'. "

    It needs 3Gb space. On checking the AWS instance, it has 17Gb free as below listed. Cannot see what is blocking the WHM update. Any advice is welcome. :)

    At bottom of the page, here:
    WebHost Manager »Server Configuration »Update Preferences

    There's an option to change the staging directory you might be able to make use of.

    Many thanks Infopro. Is there a way to increase the directory size of '/usr/local/cpanel'? Alternatively, to which directory should I point the Staging Directory setting?

    No, but you might try cleaning it up some if possible. Open google, search for:
    /usr/ full cpanel site:forums.cpanel.net

    You'll find more results than you have time to read. :)


    That's up to you. Have a look at some of those threads first though; you might get by with some maintenance.
