    Hi Everyone,
    I rebuilt Apache yesterday using Easy Apache 3 and ended up getting the following warning via email after the process finished:

    The filesystem “/boot” mounted at “/boot” reached “critical” status because you currently use 100% of its available blocks.
    Disk Block Usage:
    Used: 89.65 MB
    Available: 0 bytes
    Total: 92.83 MB

    The server is running fine right now, my guess is the Apache rebuild which was an upgrade used more space than the previous version and has filled the boot partition.

    If it's full but running fine do I need to do anything? Would there be any logs or anything I could remove to free up space? Should I investigate increasing the size of the boot partition?
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    I would suggest you clear out some old kernels from the /boot partition..

    # yum install yum-utils
    # package-cleanup --oldkernels --count=2

    I just wanted to add that the thread cPanelMichael linked to above completely resolved my issue - for anyone else with the same problem.
