    For the last week, I've been getting the following email message from my server:
    As a result, I can't upgrade cPanel or MySQL until I decrease the size of that file system. If I drill into it, I find:

    I've already deleted all log files, but that only dropped it down about 2%.

    My questions is - what can't I delete out of /dev/sda3/ ??

    Hello :)

    Typically, it's better to use the recommended partition scheme of:

    Recommended Partition

    At least 16 GB is recommended for the /usr partition if you are using an advanced partition scheme. There is not really much you can delete as most of the files in /usr are required. You could check /usr/local/apache/logs to see how much space is used there, but for the most part it's likely a partition change is required which often involves an OS reinstall.

    Thank you.
