This question already has an answer here:
first of all I'm a newbie with ubunutu servers or generell with linux. So I'll be glad if someone can explain it very simple. ^^'
My Server is a Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Server 64bit + Plesk Onyx from Strato (German Hoster).
I've the problem that my FTP webspace is on my /var directory and I've just 70GB on this /var of 2*240GB SSD.
Unfortunately the server was preset with the webinterface installation (however I've a dedicated server).
My /home on the one hard disk of 240GB has 118GB and I'm still using 500MB ... Can I shrink this /home for example to 25GB and give the 'free space' my /var? (If it's possible without shutting down the server?)
Hopefully I've explained my problem well enough. I hope anyone can give me accurate instructions to do this task. :|
