    Hi after a couple of years my Ispconfig3 server shows a critical warning that my hard drive is very full.

    Filesystem Type Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
    ext3 398G 72G 306G 20% /
    none devtmpfs 1002M 184K 1002M 1% /dev
    none tmpfs 1007M 116K 1007M 1% /dev/shm
    none tmpfs 1007M 120K 1007M 1% /var/run
    none tmpfs 1007M 0 1007M 0% /var/lock
    none tmpfs 1007M 0 1007M 0% /lib/init/rw
    ext2 228M 203M 14M 94% /boot

    I am pretty sure I have a lot of unused space yet, but I'm still getting this warning.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    You get the warning beacuse the /boot partition is 94% full.

    I 've realised that but how can I fix it? Boot is supposed to stay the same even after updates right?

    No, /boot partition can fill up with updates, e.g. when a new kernel or bootloader update gets installed.

    There is not much that you can do, hopefully the next kernel and grub updates fit into the partition. The only other option is to repartition the system, but that may cause data loss.

    my system is using only 2.6.32-32-generic-pae so is it safe to remove the old ones to make space?

    Yes, you can remove the old ones, but instead of using rm, please check if thisan be done with your distribution's package manager.
