    can you resize a partition? my /usr is at 90% and I have less traffic and the same # of domsin on that box. Where should I look to delete stuff besides the domlogs dir? also is there a easy way to get rid of the 200 domains in there that have been deleted?

    by the way /usr is 4GB now.

    Symlink will be ln -s.

    That should work fine.

    symlinking things is a good idea for this *IF* you know what you are doing. If you start symlinking critical directory structure (thinks in /usr/src, or /usr/local/cpanel , for instance), you will run into huge problems with your OS or with cpanel itself.

    been there / done that / nick bitched me out, etc.

    Just be careful.
    domlogs are a very safe dir to symlink, however, they have no ties to anything else, very straightforward.

    I was told that was nearly impossible.
