Hello,
I am on VPS using CyberPanel with OpenLiteSpeed, where my actual website contents, databases etc. are below 50% of total disk space allotted on my VPS but now my "disk usage" shows unexpected increase up-to 91% and continuously increasing.
I am unable to figure-out why this happened and need help to figure-out it and fix the issue due to this happened.
I am appreciating for any help regarding fixing of this issue.

  • Hello,
    I have made editing in /etc/crontab and take it back on previous configuration without " Making a Cron Job to Automate Spam Definition Updates" and removed:
    00 02 * * * root /bin/sa-update && /sbin/service spamassassin restart
    from /etc/crontab
    as per the info given at here: https://cyberpanel.net/blog/2018/05/22/install-spamassassin-and-stop-email-spam-on-cyberpanel/

    After removing this; and executing this command:
    systemctl restart crond.service

    The unexpected increase in disk usage stopped now.
    From the present situation it shows that this issue comes from the "Making a Cron Job to Automate Spam Definition Updates".
    Now, I need help to clean my disk space that's occupied during the execution of "Cron Job" for automatic spamassassin spam definition updates.
    Please let me know how can I do it; I am appreciating for any help to clean my disk usage from unnecessarily space occupied.

    Thanks
  • Hello,
    I have errors, when I am going to update my VPS server through the command:
    yum update -y

    and the errors are in detail here:

    [[email protected] ~]# yum update -y

    It was impossible to connect to the CentOS servers.
    This could mean a connectivity issue in your environment, such as the requirement to configure a proxy,
    or a transparent proxy that tampers with TLS security, or an incorrect system clock.
    You can try to solve this issue by using the instructions on https://wiki.centos.org/yum-errors

  • check that your /etc/resolv.conf has resolvers. Should see something like

    [[email protected] ~]# cat /etc/resolv.conf
    nameserver 8.8.8.8
    nameserver 8.8.4.4

    Yes, my /etc/resolv.conf has resolvers and it is as:

    nameserver 153.92.2.25
    nameserver 2a02:4780::25

    Thanks
  • I suggest you change them to google 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 nameservers, then try again.

  • Hello @ianw5555,
    Due to some misconfiguration in Postfix (main.cf, master.cf), Dovecot, and in Spamassassin; an unexpected increase shows in disk usage.
    At present I have stopped Postfix, Dovecot and Spamassassin services or simply email services because I need first to clear cached data done by these Daemon's, but I don't know how can I do it?
    Please help me and direct me to the right way through which I can successfully cleared my unnecessary disk space due to Postfix, Dovecot and Spamassassin cached data.
    I am appreciating for the help to do it.

    Thanks
  • I´m a bit confused, you complain about full hdd and now i see only update things?

    Can you say were or on which folder you get full of disk?
  • Cyberpanel has many issues in Centos 7, myself I switched to Ubuntu. The main reason is that the cp install script doesn't add the official yum repos for the packages it needs except for litespeed. Therefore, packages like postfix/dovecot/docker etc are loaded from the default centos/epel repo which is seriously outdated.

    My 2 cents are: unless you use Cloudlinux or really know your way around manually upgrading all those 3rd party packages, switch to Ubuntu. This should be in bold red announcement box on forums/documentation/github.
