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).

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.
