    Hi,

    The last few days or so I've been receiving this notifications ->
    I've run df -h and this was the result.

    I've cleaned tmp files from /var/tmp, but tstill getting the notifications, do I need to resize or change /dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv root??


    Any help would be gratefully received :)

    Right, the usage is still above the warning threshold based on the "df -h" output. Have you reviewed the /usr and /var directories to see what's taking up most of the space?

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the reply Michael,

    I've had a look in both /var and /usr and cannot see any large files,
    When I run du -hs /usr /var I get see this
    Yesterday i was finally able to update php from 5.3 to 5.4 and apache from 2.2 to 2.4 as the software for a (video gaming) video share site on the server was finally updated to work with php 5.4, and this morning the result of df -h was

    dropping from 88% to 64% used.
    Is there a command I could run to find the cause of the issue?

    Regards
    Pete

    Hello,

    It's possible that some previously deleted files were attached to an open process, and that process closed, freeing up the additional space. The following document explains how to examine the source of the disk space usage:

    Thank you.
