    /dev/hda3 says 100% full


    Hi all, I found this forum in a web search. Wish I'd found it a long time ago.

    Anyhow, I have WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.9.0-R118
    CentOS 3.8 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

    In my disk usage stats it says /dev/hda3 has used 7.5G out of 7.9G:

    /dev/hda3 7.9G 7.5G 0 100% /usr

    What do I need to do to fix it? Idiot instructions, please.

    You need to create a partition that is bigger and copy over the existing files and mount the new partition as /usr. Do you have a new drive?

    No, I don't have a new drive.

    I don't know how to create a new partition. Can I have step by step instructions?

    I'm pretty comfortable using SSH, I just don't know how to do a lot of things.

    download GParted LiveCD, boot from it and create new partition or resize /usr partition if possible.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Sorry I took so long to update. I couldn't get the forum to open for some reason.

    Anyhow, I couldn't do that download on dialup, it's 50mb and I wouldn't know what to do with it when I got it anyhow.

    I finally put in a trouble ticket to my host, who told me that drive stores logs and I needed to delete files via SSH.

    So I deleted domlogs and the space used dropped from +99% to 32%.

    Therefore the problem is now solved.

    size of GParted .iso image is 28MB only.

    are you sure it was /usr partition? AFAIK, log files are stored in /var partition only.

    This is what I said in my ticket:

    I am trying to delete some dead accounts off of my server and get this error:

    The /usr, /, or /var partition on this server is running out of disk space. This WHM operation has been temporarily suspended to prevent something bad from happening. Please ask your system admin to remove any files not in use on that partition.
    This is what my host replied:

    /var holds log files and mail and databases

    /usr has apache logs and domain logs

    One, or both, of those must be full. You'll have to delete files via ssh.
    So, I deleted apache and dom logs, and it worked. The drive was no longer full.
