I previously posted on this forum in the spring (https://community.bitnami.com/t/error-establishing-a-database-connection-disk-full/67901) when my company’s AWS wordpress installation suddenly went down because the disk was completely full. I did resolve that issue eventually and put into place WP-Optimize and Sweep and run them weekly to keep it from happening again. All has been working well and normally –until last week. We finally made the transition from an in-development IP address to live website URL and ever since the site has been acting up. I don’t know if that might have had an impact (or how), but I’ve had to reboot the server on AWS at least three times, then yesterday the site went down again and I discovered the disk was suddenly full. It’s a 20GB EBS volume and when we went live, it was at 11.6GB. Yesterday it had spiked to 20GB in a matter of days, despite only minimal edits to the website and no new plugins/themes/images added. I did manage to increase the volume to 25GB and resolve it so that the site is again functional, but I can’t seem to get the size down any lower than 67% full. This morning I checked it again and it’s up to 74% full (17GB). According to WP-Optimize the database is only 2.12GB in size and that hasn’t budged overnight.
Anyone have an idea as to what is going on and how I can stop it/prevent in future? Any suggestions would be most appreciated!
I also ran the bitnami support tool and here is the code: 16bbe190-455a-5322-4a68-da627ec99069
Thank you in advance for your help!
