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

June 10, 2014 1.9k 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.
