    Hi,

    "/" has got 7.9G size, which 6.7GB is used up ie 876MB left. I've run upcp to update cPanel to its latest version. But it says it required 1 GB free space on the server(which I dont have).

    ========================================

    I've got another partition which has got a lot of free space. pls advice

    I think you need 1 GB free space itself

    Hello :)

    I don't advise symbolically linking any of the directories under /usr/local/cpanel in order to free up space. Instead, it's a good idea to ensure your partition setup resembles the example in our installation guide:

    Installation Guide - System Requirements - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Are you able to transfer the accounts to a server with the recommended partition setup? Your data center may be able to help you with this. Otherwise, what else in your /usr partition is taking up the most space besides the "/usr/local/cpanel" directory?

    Thank you.
