Listed above, your directory /var/log is using up 32GB. Open that up and find out what logs are taking up all the space and then empty/delete them. Check your logs are rotating properly against the setting im WHM>>>>Tweak settings>>>Logging

Hello :)

The "/var/log/messages" log file contains system messages (e.g. FTP, Named). Feel free to view the file directly to see what type of information is logged. You can delete the following files/directories if you do not require the old logged data:

Code:
5.8G messages-20130915
9.1G messages-20130922
11G messages-20130929
Thank you.
