Hi,

I have asked support this question and they have told me the only way is to reinstall the OS and allocate a higher space to root. Then reinstall CWP and start again.

since you don't have lvm you can't increase disk space for root partition, you would need to reinstall the server.
VPS & Dedicated server provider with included FREE Managed support for CWP.

*** Don't allow that your server or website is down, choose hosting provider with included expert managed support for your CWP.

Have you guys never heard of GPartEd Live CD, a bootable ISO file with a graphical user interface for one of the most advanced partition utilities out there? You can resize and rearrange partitions as needed, in order to make more room for the root partition (you just have to figure out which one it is). It will test the resize and, if everything goes well, it will perform the resize including any data movement. No need to reinstall everything just because you set insufficient storage.

Obviously, as with any serious disk operations, you should have a full backup of any important data or settings before you run this, just to be on the safe side.

And next time you install a linux machine, make your life easier and use LVM...

Hello.

You must set the partitions in the OS installation time. You cannot change it with CWP.
You can ask me to solve any problem with your server for some money in pm  ;)
