Permanent Resize did not cause disk space to increase

April 2, 2016 3k 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.
