Permanent Resize did not cause disk space to increase

Posted April 2, 2016 5.7k views

The Permanent Resize feature clearly states that the CPU, RAM and disk will all be resized. I resized from 30GB to 40GB and a df -h (FreeBSD droplet) command showed the same. What gives???
freebsd@ivts-fbsd-db1:~ % df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/gpt/rootfs 28G 3.7G 22G 14% /
devfs 1.0K 1.0K 0B 100% /dev

Please use this command to resize your droplet

resize2fs /dev/vda1

You still need to resize the filesystem within the droplet.
