How can I increase the size of my disk?


I use cpanel, and has currently 50GB of hard disk. Now, I would like to increase my disk size, to something like 75GB, without upgrading my plan, because I don’t need of more CPU or RAM. I tried to create an additional volume with 25GB, but I couldn’t see a way to increase the size of /dev/vda1.

[root@host mnt]# df -H Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on devtmpfs 939M 0 939M 0% /dev tmpfs 964M 0 964M 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 964M 102M 863M 11% /run tmpfs 964M 0 964M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/vda1 54G 47G 7.0G 88% / /dev/loop0 1.7G 2.7M 1.6G 1% /tmp tmpfs 193M 0 193M 0% /run/user/0

Thank you in advance!

At the moment there are two options for resizing a droplet:

CPU and RAM only and Disk, CPU, and RAM - this is a permanent change.

Your other option will be to use block storage volume and resize it’s size when this is needed.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi @alexdo, thanks for your reply!

I don’t want to change my CPU and RAM, only disk space. Is it not possible?

Hello, @agjjr

You can follow this tutorial in order to increase the disk size on your droplet. Please make sure to backup your files and database before you start, just to be on the safe side.
