Running out of hard drive space?

    I am currently running ISPConfig 2.2.11 and have noticed, with 4 websites, no of which does anything more than text, are taking up 55.79GB of space.

    Can this be true? I only have text and some graphics, but nothing like video or music files on there.

    Any hints or suggestions?

    I'd recommend using "du" to determine where all the space is being used. For example, "du -x -h --max-depth=1 /" will show you the usage of all the directories directly under /.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I will definitely write that command down.

    After I ran the command, i noticed that /home took up 49GB. When I looked even further into the /home folder, i noticed that /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/temp folder had files that were 2.1GB in size, and quite a few.

    Most of them have names like zi2muAaf and so on. I know they have to be backup files for ispconfig.

    Is it safe to remove those?

    I'll have to let someone else answer that. I'm not familiar with those files.

    You can delete all files and folders in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/temp/ except of a folder called webmail or squirrelmail, if it exists.
