  • The Month in WordPress: September 2021 October 5, 2021
    There’s a lot of tolerance in open source software for shipping slightly imperfect work. And that’s good.

That was Josepha Haden on the […]

  • SSL Within the Context of Website Security October 19, 2021
    There is a common misconception that if someone adds SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to their blog site or company website then it will protect them from cyber crimes.

  • What is Cryptocurrency? September 22, 2021
    Cryptocurrency is best thought of as a digital currency that only exists on computers. It is transferred between peers (there is no middleman like a bank). Transactions are then recorded on a digital public ledger called the “blockchain”. Transaction data and the ledger are encrypted using cryptography. That is why it is called “crypto” “currency”. […]

  • 5 Types of Hackers & Why They Hack September 20, 2021
    When considering why hackers are attacking websites, you might think that there’s a specific reason they target you as a website owner—your business, your reputation, or your information.

Boot Partition Space

Posted by on 7:04 am in Server Administration | 0 comments

If your /boot partition is mounted separately , it is always a small compare to other partitions on the server.

For REHL/CentOS systems you can use below command. sudo yum install yum-utils && sudo package-cleanup --oldkernels --count=2 For the Debian and Ubuntu systems you can use below commands. First, check your kernel version, so you won’t delete the in-use kernel image, running: uname -r Now run this command for a list of installed kernels: dpkg --list 'linux-image*' | grep ^ii and delete the kernels you don’t want/need anymore by running this: sudo apt-get remove linux-image-VERSION Replace VERSION with the version of the kernel you want to remove. When you’re done removing the older kernels, you can run this to remove ever packages you won’t need anymore: sudo apt-get autoremove And finally you can run this to update grub kernel list: sudo...
