Hi everyone, this is my first post... sorry for my english, i hope you can understad me.

I have a VPS, Cpanel and WHM 11.86.0.21 and CentOs 7.8

A few days ago I noted my disk was full and also noted that cpanel folder is 54GB. Almost all that space used is from user_notifications (22GB) and Taskqueue (28GB)

Can i delete this folders? Why so many disk used, is normal?


Thanks!

I think he's referring to the following paths:
Code:
/var/cpanel/user_notifications/
/var/cpanel/taskqueue/
Before deleting anything, I would check what is taking up all that space. Ours only takes up a few megabytes.

Yes, sorry. Virtfs is another big folder.

This is /var/cpanel/taskqueue/groups folder.

Code:
[[email protected] groups]# du -sh *
28G     NotificationTasks
4.0K    dns_reload_subqueue
4.0K    fileprotect
4.0K    flush_dovecot_auth_cache
4.0K    ftpupdate
4.0K    rndc_subqueue
4.0K    update_userdata_cache
In notificationtasks i have many files, all hidden. All like this:

Code:
drwx------ 2 root root     36864 May 28 19:34 .
drwx------ 9 root root      4096 Jul 31  2019 ..

And user_notification folder contains all users. Only root have a significant size:

/var/cpanel/user_notifications/root/history it seems to cantain spam EML files...



Thanks!

It seems really odd to me that these would be consuming so much disk space in that span of time and I think it warrants further investigation.
