Hello, all

You can examine the disk space usage and delete any data which is not crucial to your application or website. What is the output of the following command:

  1. df -h

Also, I could suggest following the steps from this answer here on how to find the folders that are using the most disk space:

The other option will be to resize the droplet. You can check this article on how to resize your droplet:

I guess the last phrase I said is “you need to empty it” not correct <br> <br>it could affect the droplet. <br> <br>All you need is to delete any package in the form of zip file that you don’t need or require for current use. <br> <br>all other processes and un-used files should be deleted. <br> <br>

I’m not sure how many processes you are running, but you can check: <br> <br>run this command line:::: <br>grep processor /proc/cpuinfo | wc -l <br> <br>Then run this command line to know how much free RAM you have: <br> <br>free <br>or: <br>free -v <br> <br>Then you can run this command to know how much space used and un-used: <br> <br>df -h <br> <br>And if the RAM used is a lot, It is better to restart your VPS from the DO cntrol panel and then run free command again to see the difference. <br> <br>if your disk is full, possibly your tmp folder is full… you need to empty it <br> <br>
