Hello everybody: I'm curious how Virtualmin calculates total disk space in general. The reason I ask, is I have a dedicated server I'm leasing froma datacenter on a monthly basis that I thought I'd install Virtualmin GPL on, at least for the moment. At some point down the road however, I hope to upgrade to a Pro subscription because I'd like the capability to install WordPress etc as a 1-click installation, as I'm honestly not a large fan of manual tweeking/configuration if it can be done through an automated system where possible. I don't have the time to attempt and write my own WordPress script for useage with GPL at this point either because I've got a lot bigger issues such as site redesign things to deal with at the moment that will be a bit more pressing as time goes on at this point. So what I'm wanting to know at least running my testing, hear is what I find. I install a minimal CentOS6 OS. Then because the server uses LVM automaticly, I want to use the entire drive so: lvextend -l +100%FREE /dev/mapper/vg00-home After extending that: resize2fs -p /dev/mapper/vg00-home once this successfully happens, I tend to install Virtualmin at that point. So: wget http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/scripts/install.sh sh install.sh After answering all questions, I configure the primary setup through the wizard. But once everything is done before I've even setup a domain, I see Virtualmin is using 40 percent of my servers hosting drive? In otherwords 40GB! That is absolutely uncalled for, because du -hs and other commands don't even show that much space being used. I've even talked with CentOS devs and such, and not even they agree with me that Virtualmin is teling the actual truth as far as disk space percentages. Nobody that I talk with sees how this is possible. Can anyone here explain in a way that makes sense how therefore, Virtualmin comes to this conclusion? I'm wondering if you folks have some rounding-up mathimatical calculation system inside of Virtualmin's core codebase? Joe or Jamie might be best to answer this , unless providing details such as the install.log that the minimal CentOS automaticly installs packages wise etc would help. I'm not sure how this is happening. Is their a way to tel Virtualmin to actually "re-calculate" all disk space on the entire drive? Maybe Virtualmin is looking at the default server Raid1 setup somehow as different? fdisk -l shows the entire drive capassity of the server is 1TB, so I don't see how in the world 40GB wich is an extremely large number of GB on a hosting drive can be taken away simply by Virtualmin/webmin. Likewise, if I don't extend the logical volume, and just leave it as is, Firtualmin then says it's using 2GB out of 15. And no, I can't turn off RAID1, as this is part of the servers automatic setup regardless of how an OS is installed. It will always use RAID so I'm wondering if any bug obscure or not might have somehow gone unnoticed? I even tried looking at yum grouplist and such, and most of the groups like desktop, etc weren't even installed. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Should I try another OS image? My server provider is 1and1.com, and amungst other things they offer Debain6, Ubuntu, etc. Though the Debian images use XFS. Wonder if the Virtualmin installer would use less disk space on Debian? What's really interesting is when I've installed Virtulamin on Debain, Postgresql will still run at boot even when told not to run by the configuration wizard. The only way to make it not start is to remove the symlinks from /etc/init.d via rc-update or whatever. Take care folks.
