    try this:

    cd /usr/local/apache
    ls
    if you see a bunch of core.xxx, delete them all by:
    rm core.*

    ./ bin/ conf/ etc@ icons/ libexec/ man/
    ../ cgi-bin/ domlogs/ htdocs/ include/ logs/ proxy/
    these are all the available.

    Heres a nice command, run it in the dirs to see how much space is being tooken up in subdirs and files. 'du -h --max-depth=1'

    Also check out /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ thats where all domain logs files are kept and that can get large. Also check out /usr/local/apache/logs/

    ls -lhS /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ |head
    ls -lh /usr/local/apache/logs/

    Thanks for your support.

    shaun, I found the logs to be small (as I stated before it is just a new server)

    Below are the sizes of the folders inside /usr

    4.0k ./lost+found
    271M ./bin
    1.1G ./lib
    58M ./libexec
    55M ./sbin
    1.3G ./share
    154M ./X11R6
    4.0k ./dict
    4.0k ./etc
    3.9M ./games
    83M ./include
    225M ./local
    431M ./src
    4.8M ./kerberos
    12M ./i386-glibc21-linux
    80M ./java
    14M ./man
    340k ./doc
    3.7G .

    You got some dirs that are very large... Not sure why they are that large..

    Here's a example from one of my servers of /usr

    16k ./lost+found
    92M ./bin
    289M ./lib
    320k ./libexec
    14M ./sbin
    413M ./share
    33M ./X11R6
    4.0k ./dict
    4.0k ./etc
    8.0k ./games
    23M ./include
    730M ./local
    52k ./src
    3.2M ./kerberos
    80M ./java
    15M ./man
    152k ./doc
    1.7G .


    As you can see things like lib, libexec, share are alot smaller.

    Are you sure you or your datacenter didnt install everything that comes with redhat :p


    do a du -h --max-depth=1 inside each of those dirs that are larger to see whats inside them, just keep going deeper and deeper until you find it. My guess is in /usr/share the thing thats going to take up most of the space is man pages.


    paste a rpm -qa here too....

    I will check what you have told me and return back to you. I can see that I have the share and lib folders larger than yours.

    My host told me they installed most modules.
