RE: Disk Full Problem....


Thanks.. We tried to delete as much as possible but still the database is
occupying max space on the volume. 

Can we move mysql data files to a different volume and ask the endine to
pick the data files from there. If so I need some more help on how to do

Do you have another disk you can move the database to?  It's not that
hard to tell MySQL to use a database from another disk.  The default is

In an emergency basis, you might be able to clean up some space in some
of your other large directories.  For example, clean up /var/log and
/var/spool/up2date (the rpm and hdr files can be safely deleted - you
can always download them again if you need to).
