    Default Web Hosting Space Full, now what?


    First of all, I state that I not very experienced on the subject. I need help regarding web hosting space that reached to its limits, 5 GB. I have 5 domains with the VPS hosting account. On most used 23.5 MB of space occupied by one domain and other 3 domains occupy a total 15 MB. The fifth one indicates 4 GB of space consumption. This domain doesn’t really make any installation; the folder is in fact empty.

    This makes me think that the problem is about DB or log file. On one of my sites I use WordPress platform with WP Web Scarper plugin. I read that this plugin may grow from time and DB may even reach to 3 GB, writing data on the table wp_option. By controlling this table I see that occupies only 118 MB (I think around 100 MB). Surely many as well, but not enough to justify the problem.

    I am checking out of 5 directories via SSH:

    / var / www / vhosts / <domain name> / statistics / logs /
    / var / lib / psa / dumps /
    / usr / local / psa / var / log / maillog
    / root / psa /
    Each directory with the command “Is –I dir”, which I believe also provides the size of the file, I get numbers with up to 8 MB and the log files are not many.

    I do not know how else to solve this problem and thinking to increase disk space temporarily so I can work on Plesk.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    You must also control the size of the subdirectories. A system administrator should not take a more than 15 minutes to tell you where it occupies the space.

    Thanks for the response, problem is solved now. The WordPress plugin W3 Total Cache which helps to optimize the speed of the site creates GB of file in the” /WP-Content/ Cache” folder. From this directory I deleted stunning 3.5 GB of files. In fact the web hosting space usage continues to fall without any hard work, no tedious operation.
