    Hi

    Im getting this message

    Sorry for the inconvenience!
    The filesystem mounted at / on this server is running out of disk space. cPanel operation has been temporarily suspended to prevent something bad from happening. Please ask your system admin to remove any files not in use on that partition.

    How much free space is needed by cpanel and is there a way to disable this warning?

    Cheers
    Chriz

    Keep in mind, it's not just what cPanel and WHM uses. You should also consider swap file sizes, files users may upload, temporary files created by various scripts and processes etc.

    Chances are if you are getting a warning about low disk space especially to the point where cPanel and WHM refuses to operate, it should be heeded rather than ignored.

    You have a partition or something filling up on your drive.
    This is a warning you definitely do not want to disable.

    what is this giving you?
    df -h

    Go on, have a guess
    IIRC, that comes up when there's <90% free space left in the /var or /usr partitions. It's to protect you from data loss which can easily happen as a disk nears full.

    Ive cleaned up the drive now so its back to normal. Just wondered if it could be turned off as ive never seen it before. It started working again at around 87% if anyone is interested (80Gb Drive)
