Hi,

we have a Centos server with EXT3 filesystem and Cpanel, now we have note that the block size is 8kb so site withl small files will full the space soon.

Ext3 make for default a size of 8kb for block? can we reduce it?


example: du -h

76K ./components/com_contact
40K ./components/com_registration
32K ./components/com_wrapper
56K ./components/com_weblinks
140K ./components/com_content
44K ./components/com_newsfeeds
32K ./components/com_rss
24K ./components/com_messages
40K ./components/com_search
24K ./components/com_poll/images
88K ./components/com_poll
32K ./components/com_frontpage
44K ./components/com_user
32K ./components/com_banners
36K ./components/com_login
732K ./components

Go on, have a guess
You'll have to investigate mke2fs:

man mke2fs

You would have to wipe the partition and recreate it with a different block size and restore the data back.
