    Hi Im receiving this message:

    The / partition on this server is running out of disk space. WHM operation has been temporarily suspended to prevent something bad from happening. Please ask your system admin to remove any files not in use on that partition.

    I wanna liberate space in that partition What I need to do??

    How full is the partition? And do you have more than one partition? Post the output of "df -h".

    Your / partition is full. You must remove (old/not needed) files to make space free.

    It seems that you only have one partition for your system other than the /backup and /boot. The majority of your space is probably used under /home for all your websites, the only thing that I can recommend is deleting some old logs that you don't need anymore, or maybe old accounts?

    Also, adding another drive to the LVM will increase the amount of space in /

    We had the same problem as well, but that was because the datacenter completely ignored my request for partitioning instructions, and put the / and the /usr in a 4 gb partition.

    You can find out what is taking up most of the space and clear out some of the old files. You can also symlink a main section that is using up a lot of the space and move it to another parition on the drive. Or as Kenneth suggested, add a drive and change the LVM
