    Hello,

    I am currently trialing cPanel on a VPS, does my current disk usage look correct? It seems quite high, but I'm new cPanel so I'm not too sure. Total disk space usage at the moment is 12.91 GB.

    Here is what is installed:

    cPanel 54
    CloudLinux 7.2 with CageFS & PHP Selector
    LiteSpeed
    CSF/LFD
    Installatron
    2x Test accounts worth approx 130MB
    2GB Swap

    Hello,

    I think you have created swap partition from your server disk space and due to that it's using 2.1GB disk space. Also your /usr directory is using 8.5GB disk space so check why this directory is using such space.

    Code:
    cd /usr
    
    du -sch *
    
    mount
    
    cat /etc/fstab

    Yeah I understand about the swap taking 2GB away. I just wasn't sure how much space my sort of setup should take up.

    /usr
    Code:
    194M    bin
    4.0K    etc
    4.0K    games
    35M     include
    762M    lib
    566M    lib64
    56M     libexec
    3.8G    local (the cpanel directory within local is taking up the majority of this space)
    44M     sbin
    4.0K    selector
    4.0K    selector.etc
    3.2G    share
    35M     src
    0       tmp
    527M    tmpDSK
    9.1G    total
    Code:
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
    none            /dev/pts        devpts  mode=0620       0       0
    /dev/vda1       /       ext3    errors=remount-ro,usrjquota=quota.user,jqfmt=vfsv0      0       1
    /swap   swap    swap    0       0
    /usr/tmpDSK             /tmp                    ext3    defaults,noauto        0 0
    172.22.63.27:/var/nfs-mounts/ws1-cpanel /backup         nfs     defaults        0       0

    Hello :)

    The disk space usage looks normal. The space from cPanel in the /usr partition matches up to the standard post-installation disk space utilization.

    Thank you.
