    Hi,

    The disk is always full causing the server to eventually lock up and causing mysql and more to stop working. I have attached a screenshot.

    A reboot usually fixes it for a day or two freeing up a few hundred mb

    I already transfered mysql to /home/mysql thinking it would solve the problem but had no luck. It freed the 6GB space up but within a few weeks was full again.

    I read on another thread with someone having the same issues that they should clear their logs but that's not the problem for me.

    root@cpanel [~]# du -sh /usr/local/apache/logs/
    262M /usr/local/apache/logs/

    root@cpanel [~]# du -sh /usr/local/apache/domlogs/
    447M /usr/local/apache/domlogs/

    mysql files are also only 6GB in size

    Any idea what could be using all that space?

    Thanks

    You'll need to run a du in that partition to see what is filling it. You cannot determine anything via WHM interface on what is taking up the disk space. Troubleshooting it at the root SSH level is the only way to do it.

    Check other threads on suggestions on what commands to use for the du for file and folder size checks, or you might refer to the wikipedia page on it:
