This is the code from the support tool.
Last Friday, 11/22/19, my bitnami WP shut down unexpectedly. All services stopped running and would not come back online. After further investigation I found the disk was 100% full. I tried to increase my disk space and then start the services again. PHP and Apache would start but MySQL failed every time. After several hours of trying to get MySQL running, I finally had to launch a new instance with a snapshot from the prior day.
After I launched the new instance I checked the size of the mysql directory, it was 8GB. Compared to the mysql directory on the instance that had shut down, I was able to determine the mysql directory had grown from 8GB to approximately 238GB in less than 12 hours.
I am trying to find out what caused my DB to increase 230GB in size. Can you help me troubleshoot this problem? One thing I have found in the instance that grew in size so fast is there are 157 binlog files, each are 1.1GB in size.
