So, I am running Debian Squeeze and I know I should be running LVM (at least I think I should so I can add physical volumes later on if need be). I am new to LVM overall and have everything up and going, but I ran the volume report and found this:
Filesystem Type Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
ext3 322M 133M 173M 44% /
tmpfs tmpfs 7.9G 0 7.9G 0% /lib/init/rw
udev tmpfs 7.9G 156K 7.9G 1% /dev
tmpfs tmpfs 7.9G 0 7.9G 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1 ext2 228M 16M 201M 8% /boot
ext3 1.4T 198M 1.3T 1% /home
ext3 368M 28M 322M 8% /tmp
ext3 8.3G 961M 6.9G 12% /usr
ext3 2.8G 464M 2.2G 18% /var
So basically my /var mount is 18% full and the /home partition has all the space. I will not be using the /home partition for users as this is a web server. What is the best way to reassign that space to the var partition or will it auto expand as needed?
Thanks and apologies but I am a quasi-noob to certain parts of linux especially when using it as a server.
