Thank GNUtransfer the loan us a VPS and other resources to write this article.

In our first article about VPSControl we installed a VPS with custom partitioning scheme in this article we will see how to resize partitions in case of need

At the end of the article left the real-time video of this procedure

First we enter our VPS using ssh and checked the current size of our partition

vpscontrol_resize_0001

vpscontrol_resize_0002

In our example we have four mounting points /, /usr, /var and /home, create a text file and will place each of the partitions to show that there is no loss of data, (this is not necessary only for the example)

vpscontrol_resize_0005

vpscontrol_resize_0006

vpscontrol_resize_0007

vpscontrol_resize_0008

vpscontrol_resize_0009

Then we go to VPSControl interface

vpscontrol_resize_0010

Log in

vpscontrol_resize_0011

We click on “My VPSs” and then click on the buton «Manage»

vpscontrol_resize_0012

We click on the button «Resize partitions»

vpscontrol_resize_0013

The panel will calculate the minimum size you can have each partition as the space occupied, for it first shut down the VPS

vpscontrol_resize_0014

Then appear the partition editor (we can only change the size of them will not be able to add or remove mount points)

We modify sizes with green arrows and click on the «Accept»

vpscontrol_resize_0015

Again we click on the «Accept»

vpscontrol_resize_0016

Here we click on the buton «Continue»

vpscontrol_resize_0017

We expect to complete

vpscontrol_resize_0018

Here we waited a bit and the VPS will turn on

vpscontrol_resize_0019

vpscontrol_resize_0020

Ready our VPS already resized partitions.

vpscontrol_resize_0021

We click on the button «Detailed info» and scroll down to «Partitions» see the size of the partitions.

vpscontrol_resize_0022

Then we login via ssh again and checked the size of the partitions and files we created above

vpscontrol_resize_0025

vpscontrol_resize_0028

vpscontrol_resize_0032

Log out ssh

vpscontrol_resize_0033

Log out web interface

vpscontrol_resize_0034

Here’s the video in real time of this procedure.

VPSControl only available in GNUtransfer
