    Hey all,

    I am having a space problem on my server. Have a look at the disk space usage here.

    Device Total Space Space Used Space Available Percentage Used Mounted On
    /dev/hda8 45G 20G 23G 48% /home
    /dev/hda1 76M 43M 30M 59% /boot
    /dev/hdc1 56G 24G 29G 46% /backup
    /dev/hda5 1012M 947M 14M 99% /
    /dev/hda7 1012M 34M 927M 4% /tmp
    /dev/hda3 4.0G 1.6G 2.3G 41% /var
    /dev/hda2 4.0G 2.4G 1.5G 62% /usr


    See this one here /dev/hda5 1012M 947M 14M 99% /
    it is making it so people can not do anything on there site. No http no ftp.

    I tried removing some stuff but I believe almost all of it was on /home.

    What is on this space that I can remove to get some space? Any ideas please?

    Go on, have a guess
    You need to keep using du and going down into each directory and clear up what you don't need. If you don't know what you can and cannot delete, you should hire a server admin to help you as you could easily destroy things if you go in blindly.
