Linux Partitions and How
Posted on 2004-11-05
First off, I have an intel server running Redhat Linux. It's designated to be used for hosting, so it's running Plesk 7. At this time, it has little activity / usage.
I noticed something alarming about the way the server is set up.
The server has a 70 gig (or close) hard drive, but the files from the hosting "stuff" are going to the wrong partition. Instead of going to the partition with the 68 gigs of free space, they are filling up the section with only 2 gigs space. Obviously, it won't be long before this drives things to a halt.
Here is the DF info...
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3 2522076 401676 1992284 17% /
/dev/hda1 101089 9321 86549 10% /boot
none 514940 0 514940 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda7 396623 8246 367896 3% /tmp
/dev/hda2 70557084 694392 66278592 2% /usr
/dev/hda5 1510032 121060 1312264 9% /var
Here is what plesk reports:
Filesystem Total Used Available Capacity
/dev/hda2 68 903.40 MB 678.14 MB 64 725.16 MB 0.98%
/dev/hda5 1 474.64 MB 118.22 MB 1 281.51 MB 8.02%
/dev/hda3 2 462.96 MB 392.26 MB 1 945.59 MB 15.93%
So it looks like all the client files are being stored on hda3, instead of hda2. Is there any way to fix this or work around it? I am not only new to plesk, but new to linux in general. This server is being stored in a rented rack - which is in a new york data center. So - I'm out of luck if the solution requires physical access to the server.
Thanks in advance for any help,
