    In this article there are only recommendations how to partition hard drive for Plesk server.

    Additionally to find the top files consuming the disk space use the following command:
    du -ah /var | sort -n -r | head -n 5

    These are terrible instructions! It wasted a lot of my time. You can't even upgrade Centos with a boot partition that small. Here's what your figures should be!

    SWAP - unless you are critically under supplying RAM half not double of your RAM is enough...

    /boot - 256MB !!

    / - 15 to 20GB (recommend larger if you have the room)

    /tmp - 4GB

    /var - the rest, as much as you can...

    Also, if you configure using LVM, resizing (up or down if you use ext4) is easy and fast. BUT you can't LVM /boot and since it's the first partition on the disk, having it undersized is a real pita so make sure you use 256MB !!

    Rant out. Hopefully useful to someone else...
