Hello

I have tried a number of times to reduce the size of my EBS volume. I keep running into problems.

I am using Centos 7.3.1611 and Plesk (set up through Amazon marketplace)

I have managed to copy all the files over from the old server to the new using the instructions here (https://superuser.com/questions/1123799/how-to-decrease-size-the-ebs-root-volume-of-the-rhel-instance-in-aws) - as well as similar other guides.

The only difference is because I am using xfs instead of ext4 I was unable to do the e2label

When I attach the new volume to the instance as /dev/sda1 it does not load. I cannot connect to it using SSH and websites do not load.

I am at a loss now. I have tried so many times. I made a mistake making my initial EBS volume size way too big and it is costing me quite a bit of money every day.

I am unsure if the problem is because I am formatting my drive is XFS. This was the format of the original drive when I first set up the instance. I have not been able to find a guide that details how to shrink an EBS volume that is formatted in XFS, they are all for ext4.


If any one could provide some assistance that would be much appreciated.
