Root Partitions /Dev/Root
« on: February 03, 2018, 11:07:50 PM »
Before installing OS and Centos Web Panel, make sure the Root Partition is at 500 gig.  Otherwise, you will run out of space /Dev/Root.  This is the mistake I did when partitioning the root.   Server's default is 20 gig.   I went to 100 gig and still run into issues.

If you run out of space at /Dev/Root.  Do the following
  • Disable Backups and delete all backups
  • Delete Nginx Log

I have set mine to 15 GiB and not facing any issue after the CWP installation, or otherwise

I believe this works fine with even 20GB /dev/mapper/root space.

Your backups might be taking up space depending on what you are running.

If Backups or logs are taking a lot of root space.

You might have to consider adding further disk and creating segregated file system and bind those location.
