I am not much used to UNIX. The company I am hosting wiht refuses to help me with this trouble, but as near as I can see, it is NOT my trouble.
I have had this service for over a year. I just renewed for another year and all of a sudden the disk quota has been disappearing. I deleted all files that grow like log files, mail archives, bounces, stuff like that.
But, the used space keeps growing and now the disk quota is completely full. I have deleted nearly every file off the server and yet the used space keeps growing.
When I tell the owner of the hosting company that this is happening and asked for an explaination, he basically told me he couldn't explain that and that I was stupid for asking.
One person did tell me that there might be some hidden files which I would never be able to see or delete and that what ever was in them is growing. Is this true?
This problem started one week ago, the day after I renewed my serivce. However, I had not added any files to the server after renewing the contract.
I am currently trying to move to a different server because of his repeated poor customer service, but I need to know if this is true about the hidden files and what one can do about this situation I am in if it ever happens again.
