I have Debian 7.6 installed on an OpenVZ VPS with 10G hard drive space, but for some reason it claims 100% is used when I'm clearly not using that much. I ran
df -h to find out the following:
$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/simfs 10G 5.3G 0 100% / tmpfs 16G 1.1M 16G 1% /run tmpfs 16G 0 16G 0% /run/lock tmpfs 16G 0 16G 0% /run/shm
I then deleted some old files to see if it changed anything and used
df -h again only to find out that usage is still 100%.
$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/simfs 10G 3.9G 0 100% / tmpfs 16G 1.1M 16G 1% /run tmpfs 16G 0 16G 0% /run/lock tmpfs 16G 0 16G 0% /run/shm
The control panel for the VPS says following:
I can delete files but I cannot write anything new. What's up with that? Is another client possibly using up my space on the hard disk causing my operating system to be unable to access that space?
I should also mention that I did a full
apt-get update followed by
apt-get upgrade last night. Could that have something to do with it?
