    Hi, i have a full partition (backup). Can someone please explain how i can clear out some files. I have read this faq http://faq.cpanel.net/show.cgi?qa=104683234309336 but i don't know how to get to that stage. I login to whm and have root password thats all i know.
    Please help, this is something i want to learn how to do and so not keep on bothering server hosts.

    Several ways to do this I think. If you have SSH you can login, mount the backup drive and navigate to that drive and remove old backups manually. Search the forums for details on that.
    Or you could use a script to clear old backups. Search these forums for that as well. Its here.
    Another easy way to go might be to install this. With that installed and your backup mounted you could navigate to the backup drive via WHM and remove old backups anytime you like, quite easy.

    Start here. Good luck.
