    Hello, I have a vps where I have 50GB disk size and I have only 2-3GB Left. Via WHM I checked the biggest disk using websites, they are only few and they use ~7GB, other 30 websites use like ~50MB so we have only 8GB used by websites. Does cPanel really use ~40GB space just to work? Or can you give me some hints how to fix this issue?

    I was thinking maybe some mysql databases take too much space, but how to check them, if they are in separate clients accounts?

    I'm also thinking about moving whole system to another vps with 1TB space, will a cPanel whm backup be enough, to save all my clients, dns settings, and etc?

    Have you deleted old folders from your backup directory and log files?
    See where the space is used:
    du -h --max-depth=1

    Can you give me directories of those logs and backup directories where I can delete?
