Not enough space on the droplet and big size folders for wordpress

Hello I’m using two droplets (1 GB Memory / 30 GB Disk )

In those droplets, i install couple wordpress sites, as a mockup with vestacp and easyengine each respectively. Basically not much of articles. But then i was informed that i’m running out of space, here’s my du -sh * :

168M 22222 53M 5.1G 128M 8.0K html 182M 19M roundcubemail 339M

and here’s for another droplet:

60K 60K 188K 420M 60K 60K 1.7G 275M 108M 165M 140M 300K 342M 149M

Can anyone tell me why

  1. a simple wordpress site can have 5.1G size?
  2. Why i kept getting out of space report on my monitor and my usage of mysql is so high?

Deeply appreciate any clue.

Thank you in advance.

Looks like you are storing large sound, video and image files directly on your droplet, try and move them to places like YouTube fit the video, SoundCloud for audio and photobucket for large images and just link them inserted.

Also make sure you enforce “disk quotas” in vestacp (if possible!) that will stop and individual site using up to much disk space.
