Hello :)

Typically, usage displayed under the "Other" category is for files not contained within your home directory. You can confirm this by checking the disk space usage in an account's home directory. EX:

Code:
du -sh /home/username
If it's less usage than reported for the account disk space usage in cPanel or WHM, then it indicates there are files owned by this user elsewhere on the system. This could include mailing lists, or simply files owned by the account elsewhere on the system.

Thank you.

Thanx for your reply,

cPanel host for this username has: Disk Space Usage 87.63 / 200 MB
du -sh says: username has 35MB
other files for this username has 52MB

So, I tried locate files with this username on server, and I only found in tmp folder and deleted all.
But this is only 1MB!

Where I can find rest of the files?
Or is there some linux shell command for search files with owner name?

After many searching, i found problem.

The problem is OpenCart cms. OpenCart is instaled on selected host account, and make tmp files for any session.
Other files was actualy temp session files.
