Hello,

the cpanel shows:
Code:
Disk Space Usage	 201.76 MB / 800 MB
but when i do via SSH:
Code:
cd /home/znokceqg;du -h --max-depth=1
424K    ./logs
36K     ./.softaculous
4.0K    ./cpmove.psql
116K    ./etc
976K    ./mail
1.7M    ./tmp
4.0K    ./.trash
8.0K    ./.cl.selector
384K    ./.cpanel
8.0K    ./softaculous_backups
8.0K    ./public_ftp
81M     ./public_html
4.0K    ./.htpasswds
16K     ./.attracta
24K     ./ssl
[B]85M[/B]     .

Hello :)

Please review the following option in cPanel:

"Disk Space Usage"

It will tell you where the space is coming from, as it's possible that it's not related to usage in the account's home directory.

Thank you.

It's safe to run, as it's main purpose is to recalculate quotas. However, it's likely not going to help here. Please see my earlier response to this thread.

Thanks.
