Hi,

I have a server with disk quota problem, I removed old databases but when use command "df -h" not appear the new free disk quota.

-Before remove database: df -h / -> 94%
-After remove database (I calculated should get 2.5%): df -h / -> 94% too

Why happened?.

Too I used the command "lsof -n | grep deleted", I attached a image with information, the server have more than 30 times this lines.

I have CloudLinux + WHM/cPanel, and removed database since cPanel account.

Thank you very much.

Exactly what @ffeingol noted, usually this wouldn't happen right away if MySQL was still holding those files in memory, the only way to drop them is to restart the service holding them open.
