    Hello,

    The hard disk partion / is 99% full on the server which is of 2 GB.

    However when we use du -h --max-depth 1 it does not show which file is occouping so much of disk space on /

    How can we find out what is cause of 99% disk usges full?

    Please advise.

    Hi!

    Tried this command and it gives this:-

    root@srv [~]# du -csh *
    8.0K anaconda-ks.cfg
    12K cpanel3-skel
    2.3M csf
    12K install.log.syslog
    4.0K public_ftp
    8.0K public_html
    4.0K tmp
    2.4M total


    However df -m says this:-

    root@srv [~]# df -m
    Filesystem 1M-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda6 1984 1846 36 99% /

    Any idea?

    Thanks

    When you ran that, you were not in / , you were in ~

    Run
    cd /
    du -hx --max-depth=1
