Hello, all

You can examine the disk space usage and delete any data which is not crucial to your application or website. What is the output of the following command:

  1. df -h

Also, I could suggest following the steps from this answer here on how to find the folders that are using the most disk space:

The other option will be to resize the droplet. You can check this article on how to resize your droplet:

Figured it out. unicorn.log was over 17.5 gigs. How in the world does that even happen?

I saw it when I tried adding code to the server. Then i checked with the df -h and it said 100% was used.
