    I use linux Fedora Core4. Normally, rm command will delete file(s) and then give me back a space. Yesterday, I deleted file "/home/www/web3/log/error.log" which was 17GB of its size. After deleting, the available size on my server (viewed by using "du -kh" ) was still the same as before deletion. Could anyone help me to solve this, and how can I do?

    Please check with the commad "ls -la" that the file id really deleted.

    Sorry, I have made a mistake posting question :confused:

    du -kh <-- this return the correct free space (current + deleted file).

    BUT

    df -h <--- this return the same amount of disk space before and after deletion.

    How can I really free my space using "rm" command?

    Please answer my question above. Does the command "ls -la" shows the file or not?

    Then it's gone. Does
    Code:
    df -h
    still show the wrong results?

    That's right. "df -h" shows the wrong result.

    Anyway "du -kh" show the correct. But the problem is, ISPConfig also shows the result which same as "df -h". And when there is 100% usage, user cannot receive email or upload file.

    Upload via FTP program is OK.
