Disk Space 100% Used. Cleaned but still Used 100%

Posted June 10, 2014 4.4k views
Hello, Guys need your advice. I ran a command on my CentOS df -h and it says
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda         30G   29G     0 100% /
none            504M     0  504M   0% /dev/shm
Well, I understand that it means that no space left available. But I have now erased like 5 Gigs of old backups and it says still Use - 100%. Can you tell please where is my mistake? Regards, Vlad

Strange, was deleting files from SSH. Went to my Server panel, deleted from there and everything went good.
You were probably deleting symlinks via SSH or something similar. Since there's no reason why deleting via a panel would work any better than with the real commands.

root@cpanel:~# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev 245M 12K 245M 1% /dev
tmpfs 50M 368K 50M 1% /run
/dev/vda1 20G 11G 8.7G 55% /
none 4.0K 0 4.0K 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
none 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock
none 248M 0 248M 0% /run/shm
none 100M 0 100M 0% /run/user
root@cpanel:~# df -i
Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on
udev 62479 392 62087 1% /dev
tmpfs 63396 347 63049 1% /run
/dev/vda1 1310720 1310720 0 100% /
