    We're in the process of migrating to a new server. However, in the process we are reaching levels of 90%+ of usage in the /usr partition. Is there anyway to make room by deleting things from here? We've never used squirrel mail, but we see that it takes a good amount of space in this area? Same thing for frontpage extensions. How can we safely remove extra 'features' that are not in used?

    It's incredibly risky removing things from /usr. If you need to ask this question, you probably shouldn't be removing things as you could break your system badly.

    Having said that, if you do a backup, you may be able to safely remove stuff under /usr/local. Or you could use a symlink (ln -s) to move stuff to another disk with more room.

    Unless the 90% full indication is actually causing you problems, and it shouldn't be, you'd be best just leaving it alone and moving as fast as you can.
