    All my servers have a standard 3.9GB space allocated for /var directory. None of them use more than 30% of the allocated space except for one server with over 80% space occupied. Server is running RedHat 7.3 with WHM 8.5.4 cPanel 8.5.4-R72.

    I have already listed out the space usage for all files on that directory but couldn't find any abnormalities. All the files are exactly the same as my other servers' /var directory ... and yet it occupies over 80% of 3.9GB. Why? How can I free more space for the /var directory on this particular server?

    look to see if you have apache core dumps in there. That happened to me one time.

    it is safe to delete apache core dump files. That is fron where apache freeked out and did a memory dump but you might want to double check.
