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
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)
Then we go to VPSControl interface
We click on “My VPSs” and then click on the buton «Manage»
We click on the button «Resize partitions»
The panel will calculate the minimum size you can have each partition as the space occupied, for it first shut down the VPS
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»
Again we click on the «Accept»
Here we click on the buton «Continue»
We expect to complete
Here we waited a bit and the VPS will turn on
Ready our VPS already resized partitions.
We click on the button «Detailed info» and scroll down to «Partitions» see the size of the partitions.
Then we login via ssh again and checked the size of the partitions and files we created above
Log out ssh
Log out web interface
Here’s the video in real time of this procedure.
VPSControl only available in GNUtransfer
