    Hi,

    I've received a cPanel DISKWARN regarding the /var partition. In looking for the consumed space, it appears that /var/lib/mysql is using 6.6G of that space.

    The server does have a few sites with large databases.

    I'm not sure the best way to handle this; I would hope that all site files were on the largest partition (/home), but this doesn't seem to be the case with mysql databases.

    Any suggestions on the best way to handle this before I run out of space?

    Thanks in Advance!
    Diane

    Hello :)

    Yes, the thread mentioned in the previous post outlines how to move the MySQL directory to another partition. Ensure you use the recommended partition configuration in the future for new servers:

    Thank you.
