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

Guys need your advice.

I ran a command on my CentOS df -h and it says

<pre> Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/vda 30G 29G 0 100% / none 504M 0 504M 0% /dev/shm </pre> 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

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.

Strange, was deleting files from SSH.

Went to my Server panel, deleted from there and everything went good.
