    Most likely the reason for the increased disk space usage of the /usr folder are the Apache logs.

    They are located in the /usr/local/apache/logs/ folder.

    Also, the access log files for every domain are stored in the /usr/local/apache/domlogs directory.

    You can decrease their size by setting the logs rotation from WHM -> Service Configuration -> Apache Configuration -> Log Rotation.

    The old logs will be archived and you can delete them.

    It is better to keep the mailman data folder, since it contains the messages for your mail lists.

    hello sven4o,

    thanks for your advice,

    i have check the size for apache log and domlog, its not increase my disk. and i also create a log rotate.
    its possible if i move the /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/data for the old file to another folder (ex: home folder). the folder mailman data contain some old file (2007 and 2008) like this:

    -rw-rw-r-- 1 mailman mailman 1764 Jun 16 2008 heldmsg-<bound\ method\ MailList.internal_name\ of\ <mailing\ list\ "cs_sinarmasfutures.co.id"\ (locked)\ at\ -4827cef4>>-7.pck
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 mailman mailman 18376 Jun 19 2008 heldmsg-<bound\ method\ MailList.internal_name\ of\ <mailing\ list\ "cs_sinarmasfutures.co.id"\ (locked)\ at\ -4827cf54>>-13.pck
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 mailman mailman 42522 Aug 3 2008 heldmsg-<bound\ method\ MailList.internal_name\ of\ <mailing\ list\ "cs_sinarmasfutures.co.id"\ (locked)\ at\ -4827d594>>-145.pck
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 mailman mailman 42364 Aug 3 2008 heldmsg-<bound\ method\ MailList.internal_name\ of\ <mailing\ list\ "cs_sinarmasfutures.co.id"\ (locked)\ at\ -4827d594>>-146.pck
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 mailman mailman 29979 May 14 2007 heldmsg-<bound\ method\ MailList.internal_name\ of\ <mailing\ list\ "syseng_banksinarmas.com"\ (locked)\ at\ -48121834>>-10.pck

    that file is mailinglist message.
    i am confuse why the mailinglist message is keep on /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/data. it should be store on /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/qfiles/in

    so i need your advice, its better i move some old file on usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/data to another folder, like folder /home with the much free space than /usr OR i still keep that file with the condition my /usr space will out of space.

    i really need your advice

    thank you very much

    The following mailman wiki entry should help; it shows a method to manually remove held messages via command-line (e.g., via SSH access):
