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!

Hi there,

I have a similar question which the URL you’re sending us to doesn’t answer.

Is it possible to resize the disk only?

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.
