user admin taking too much space on disk

HI All ,

All of a sudden one of my sub-domains have started showing abnormal space usage for the administrator .

Virtualmin is installed on CentOS release 6.4 (Final).

The current status is as follows .

Home disk space used (including sub-servers) 447.54 MB (14.14 GB by server administrator, 0 bytes by mail / FTP users).

I have allocated 15 GB to the admin and it is getting consumed at the rate of 0.01 GB every hours . I am confused what is causing this issue .

Any suggestions is welcome .

Thanks Amit

What is the output of:

du -h /home/username

*** where username is the directory to the home of the domain in question ***

Ask me about my new support plans which include a FREE copy of Virtualmin Pro!!!

Howdy -- yeah, you would need to review the space being used by the various files and directories in the homedir for your Virtual Server. Using commands such as what tpnsolutions will help you get to the bottom of what is consuming the space.
