The /var directory is 97% full
on my dedicated server:
I would like to know if it is safe to clear it and how to clear it
(assuming it will not disrupt/kill server services to do so).
I have Matrix control panel so i can view the storage etc but it does not have an way of clearing the /Var directory.
I have Putty Access to root but do not know which command to use.
I found a few threads but the information is not clear to me as there seems to be an assumption of basic knowledge I don't yet have.
My linux/ubuntu support that usually does this kind of thing for me is away and not contactable and my server is grinding to a halt and unable to store/send email.
I have only a very basic understanding of command line but really need to get this sorted ASAP.
