At Bobcares, we provide outsourced technical support services for shared hosting companies. During this service span, we’ve resolved a multitude of server issues and errors.
One among the very common issues faced by cPanel/WHM server owners is getting this disk usage warning email:
The filesystem “/dev/sda6”, which is mounted at “/”, has reached “warn” status because it is 84.73% full.
A website suddenly goes offline. The server is un-responsive. A server reboot is attempted, but the server fails to come back online.
This is typical of the way a server crash would unfold. As a server management company, we’ve often seen such issues with dedicated servers, however, recently we’ve started seeing such issues in cloud systems as well. People tend to associate cloud systems with stability, but even cloud system hardware and software are susceptible to failures.
