    I need to resize my / partition on my VPS. I have increased the disk size but not sure of the current advice to increase /.

    Here is the advice from my provider, but it is quite old:

    wiki.hetzner.de/index.php/Resize_Ext_Partition/en

    Is this still the way to do it or is there a better way nowadays?

    Gparted will be a good option with ease of use to extend the root parttion . you have the option to mount the gparted image edoimedo.com/computers/gparted.html
    For hetzner to mount live cd you can reffer

    I followed the Hetzner instructions in the end and it worked fine.
