    I just recently aquired an older server to use as a test server.
    It has a very small /var partition. I was wondering how I could increase the size of it from 500Mb to 3.8 gigs.
    Thank you in advance.

    Format the machine & reinstall or symlink directories in /var over to another partition with more space.

    I know this is an old post but i thought i would raise the issue im having here...

    I have a server which has /var at about 85% due to the enourmous amount of databases running on the server.

    can anyone give me a fool proof way to increase the size of the /var partition ithout causing server issues, downtime etc?

    Im running this particular server with WHM on a Fedora FC2 if that makes a difference

    Go on, have a guess
    The only fool-proof way is to do exactly what ciphervendor suggested, or add another physical HD and move the /var partition contents onto it and then mount it as /var.
