I am trying to help someone out and have an issue I have never seen.
I went to run easy apache and got this warning
There appears to be insufficient disk space in /home/cpeasyapache/src!
0MB is available on this file system and 1024MB is needed.
Easyapache will fail to build because there is not enough free disk space.
Aborting.
!!
ok, no biggie I thought, I'll check and see if there are backups or something there.
well...log in as root and there is no cpeasyapache folder.
ok Ill make one I thought.
not allowed as it exists....HUH ?
in shell I cd /home/cpeasyapache and it works.
do a ls and the contents are . and .. it shows, almost as if someone had symlinked it to the /home directory and the folders root owns there or reset owner somehow. I tried chown /cpeasyapache but did not help.

I cannot figure out what was done here.
I told the owner to file a support ticket but figured I would ask here too in case someone ever seen this.

a /scripts/upcp --force worked fine, no errors, but same issue with the folder.

You don't tell how much space there is in that partition.

What is the output of command:
Code:
df -h

its a vps that I am not sure exactly how they setup

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vzfs 39G 4.4G 34G 12% /
none 512M 4.0K 512M 1% /dev
I know 2 weeks ago this was not an issue, but it looks like someone else was playing around in it adding some mod_security rules and stuff.
and the owner does not know who did what so I am operating blindly.

You can remove the /home/cpeasyapache folder and then try to run EasyApache.

I will try that in a bit, will have to do it in ssh and hope it works as the folder is not visible in filezilla or configserver file explorer in whm
