    Hi, was wondering if maybe someone could help me this :

    /dev/hda6 showing 81% used

    none > /dev/shm ?????????

    /tmp > /var/tmp ?????????

    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/hda6 992M 761M 180M 81% /
    /dev/hda1 99M 14M 80M 15% /boot
    /dev/hda8 17G 4.2G 12G 27% /home
    none 236M 0 236M 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/hda7 992M 36M 906M 4% /tmp
    /dev/hda2 9.7G 4.4G 4.9G 48% /usr
    /dev/hda3 6.7G 924M 5.4G 15% /var
    /dev/hdb1 74G 2.7G 67G 4% /home2
    /tmp 992M 36M 906M 4% /var/tmp

    I wont beat around the bush or make excuses, all ill say is that its the last time i try fixing problems while half asleep :eek:

    I know the easiest/best solution is probably an os restore and if it comes to the worse then i suppose i have no option but id rather find a solution short of this if possible.

    Thanks for any help or advice.

    No need to rebuild the server. The problem is that you have files consuming space on the / partition, which can be tricky to identify. Perhaps the most likely candidate is if you have a /backup directory that used to be a mount point for a disk and you now have cPAnel backups going to that directory - I'd suggest checking your disks and/or moving /backup elsewhere, e.g. /var/backup and changing the backup destination in WHM

    Thanks chirpy. at least thats something. not needing an os restore.

    If you have the time you think you could explain where and how i need to go about doing this.

    Normally id use mu own initative and try to figure these things out for myself but in this instance i dont really want to risk making things worse.

    Thanks again.

    It's usually a matter of starting from the top level / and working your way down using ls -la and du -h --max-depth=1, but you do have to be very careful in what you delete as you could easily break something critical.
