    Hi

    I've been getting this message in my admin email.

    Drive Critical: /sda7 (/) is 92% full

    If the (/) refers to the / partition, I allocated 1024 MB as instructed in the Cpanel installation manual.

    Does anyone know why this happens? It used to be at 83% before, and now it increased. I never did anything directly to add to / partition.

    Please help.

    Thanks

    is that your root directory? can you delete any files inside there?

    So I dont think I can delete anything from /

    What I dont understand is when I did "ls -lh", it seems it's only using 193K? but how come when I did "df" it says I'm using 885476 ? Can any linux experts help on this? Thank you!!

    Hi,

    Check for the old log files, any sort of backup file which is old, clear tmp...desent in to the directories and execute the command "ll -Sch". It will shows you the file size by soting. Let me know that result. So that I can advice you.
