    How: Which folder for most disk space used?

    Recently I got a warning from cPanel that my website is over 800Mb (80% used). I don't think my site is that BIG. Something must have gone wrong. How do I find out which folder contains the largest files?

    Go on, have a guess
    Use du to track down space issues:

    du -h --max-depth=1 /home/username

    cd into a directoy using a lot of space, ls -la to see what is in it, repeat du and process for all directories.
