http://ubuntuforums.org – I have an issue with one of my servers running Ubuntu. MySQL is not working because the disk is "full". I checked the root directory and there's 218GB of data in there but the du command won't tell me where it's all located. (unless I've missed something!) Also, I don't know why I'm using 218gb of data all of a sudden because I've not put more than 15GB of data on it myself, including the OS. Output: du -h 32K ./Desktop/misc/st temp/do_not_upload/rewrite/apache2 44K ./Desktop/misc/st temp/do_not_upload/rewrite 84K ./Desktop/misc/st temp/do_not_upload/blog 64K ./De (Hardware)
