    Disk Usage Spiked

    My server disk usage has shot up from around 20% to 90% today.


    SMTP Relay has maxed out to 5000.


    Not quite sure the problem, tried to locate larger files and removing them.


    Wondering if anyone has any ideas as to why the sudden spike in usage? or perhaps how to reduce it again?

    Run a malware scan to make sure that your site hasn't been hacked and compromised so that a third party can use your resources. 


    If your site is clean, run a performance test to see what the issue may be.  


    HTH! 😉
