I've built a LAMP server a while ago to be a Moodle server for a school. I'm trying to update the Moodle and add Ghostscript and am getting out of space warnings. I new to the world of ubuntu and installed pretty much all of it with defaults. My /dev/sda1 dir is only 256M and 100% used. If I recall, this is a 2TB drive. How do I enlarge these spaces so I can keep updating this machine?

Let me know what I did wrong and how to fix it.

  • Tried to do the terminal text thing, but couldn't figure out how to do it while in forum on windows machine and RDP'd into mubuntu. – marvout Mar 14 '18 at 15:21
  • Sorry, trying to figure out this forum. Not sure how to clarify/respond to these answers. Hope this is right.... or am I supposed to 'Answer' my own question? – marvout Mar 14 '18 at 15:22
  • Yes, my /boot is full. That's the problem I identified. Trying to learn what is wrong and how to fix. Poked around and found that I have 7 20MB initrd.img files. That looks like a possible problem. Am I on the right track? – marvout Mar 14 '18 at 15:25
  • yes, it's one of the more annoying 'features' of Ubutnu. You have to manually purge old kernels. See the link posted above. – rtaft Mar 14 '18 at 16:15
