How can i increase / folder size


I have Redhat 4 Update 6 server. This server working as Oracle Application server.

I have a bottleneck  about / size. you can see at below. I dont have free size / folder. But I create / folder as LVM. And I have Free size for LVM folders.

Can you tell me, how can i increase / folder size?

It seems you only have 1.47 GB of free space to expand on your / , but you can add physical volumes later and extend both VG then your partition , meanwhile lets use your 1.47 GB

 lvextend -L+1.4G /dev/VolGroup00/LogVolRoot

This will extend your LV , make sure of the name I might have typed it wrong.

Now you need to extend the file system ocupying this new space

resize2fs /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00

Now do a df -h and check the new size
