SRV (17 GB) and VAR (6.9GB) folder is taking too much disk space. And, it’s getting increasing day after day. And, I haven’t made any changes on my blog from many months. Just adding articles. Please help, because of this. I have upgraded my storage from 25 to 50GB. And, now 50 GB is also filling faster. I am a Windows user. Don’t know much about linux commands.

Run these commands as root and copy/paste the output here:

find /srv /var -type f -size +128M -exec du -sh {} \;

and this command:

du -sh /var/log/*
