Hi everyone,

I have a small VPS in OVH and running 3 websites on it. My websites are running slower and I checked that is due to disk space is near full.

Code:
[[email protected] public_html]# df
Filesystem     1K-blocks     Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda1       41152832 38456644    599552  99% /
tmpfs            3932304       28   3932276   1% /dev/shm
I want to buy extra disk from OVH and i found this option

Order an additional disk OVH.jpg

How does this disk work? it will add extra disk space to my VPS?
Can I delete temporary files or unnecessary files on this VPS to free up disk space? if that, how can I do?

Thanks

Hello @Dr. McKay,
It will not increase your VPS disk storage, but only plug another disk on your server. You will be able to mount this additional disk on the directory of your choice, but it will not fix your current issue (no space available on the main disk). If there are backup stored on your VPS disk, you can still move them on the additional disk to free up disk space.

Hi do not upgrade unnecessarily first look at optimizing each of your websites with both image compression and browser caching if you are able review your code for problem areas use https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ as a general guide for problem areas if all of that fails backup all data and consider a move

So, adding additional disk for what purpose? :(
If there are backup stored on your VPS disk, you can still move them on the additional disk to free up disk space.
What do you mean for "backup stored on your VPS disk"? how can I move it to main disk that using for websites?

The following command will allow you to quickly/easily identify the top 10 largest files, and folders:
Code:
FS='/';clear;date;df -h $FS; echo "Largest Directories:"; du -hcx –max-depth=2 $FS 2>/dev/null | grep [0-9]G | sort -grk 1 | head -15 ;echo "Largest Files:"; nice -n 19 find $FS -mount -type f -print0 2>/dev/null| xargs -0 du -k | sort -rnk1| head -n20 |awk '{printf "%8d MB\t%s\n",($1/1024),$NF}'
It is completely informational and will not delete or modify anything.
