disk usage full. but I do not know why my usage is full.

My usage is 30GB, and I use WordPress 5GB.

However, since WordPress does not upload the file, I can access console access and check it using “du -sh / *” command.

The / var directory occupies 28 GB. What is the problem?

I have never uploaded a large file using ftp.
