GNU server running low on disks space

I have a GNU server that's low on disk space, I'd like to know the files that I can remove to free up some space ....

Thank you,

Well first of all I am going to assume you mean GNU/Linux, and not the actual GNU operating system. To that end, you would really need to mention which distribution you are using before anyone could give more specific advice.

It might also help if you told us how large of a drive we are dealing with.

Telling us which partition is low on space would help, too.

One quick suggestion... Check your log files in /var/log. Logrotate will keep many old log files. If you don't plan on using them, you can delete them.
