    Hello this is my fist post,

    I have a problem. I'm installet WHM 11.5 on Centos and create a one account. But I can't open Account management console.

    This error:
    <<
    Sorry for the inconvenience!

    The filesystem mounted at /home/** on this server is running out of disk space. cPanel operations have been temporarily suspended to prevent something bad from happening. Please ask your system admin to remove any files not in use on that partition.
    >>

    I checked the steps below.

    Step 1:
    Account Disk Quta informatin: I assigned 40GB qouta this domain.

    Step 2:
    "df -h " command print, I saw a problem disk usage,

    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/mapper/vg_vps-lv_root 50G 4.2G 43G 9% /
    tmpfs 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda1 485M 68M 393M 15% /boot
    /dev/mapper/vg_vps-lv_home 5.6G 5.3G 16K 100% /home
    /usr/tmpDSK 485M 11M 449M 3% /tmp

    Step 3: Tray expand size for vg_vps-lv_home,
    "lvextend -L7G /dev/mapper/vg_vps-lv_home"

    but I got this error

    Extending logical volume lv_home to 7.00 GiB
    Insufficient free space: 350 extents needed, but only 0 available


    How can I expand size for vg_vps-lv_home

    Hello,

    I can see your / partition is created with the 50GB and /home size is only 5GB and if you want to increase your /home partitions first check there is free space is available on your server OR total disk space is used

    Check total disk size of your VPS through following command

    Code:
    fdisk -l
    And check your LVM setup with the following command

    Code:
    pvs
    
    lvs
    
    vgs

    Here is one of the good Article for you 1&1 Help Center - Increase the Size of the Logical Volume

    Hello :)

    The message you provided indicates the /home partition is running out of space. You will need to consult with your VPS software provider if the tools they provide you to increase the disk space available to a partition are not working as intended.

    Thank you.
