    Hello :) It's possible your VPS needs to be restarted after your hosting provider has added additional space to your individual VPS. Thank you.

    Could you verify the VPS has been rebooted since your provider added more space? Thank you.

    Your services will not function when you have no available disk space. Thus, the solution to this issue is to determine why the additional space you purchased from your provider is not yet allocated to your VPS. Have you contacted them to verify why it's not yet been added? Thank you.

    From: OVH Support See the raw version of the message Hello, If the issue is related to the hard drive capacity, than you will still need to extend the partition of your server after doing the upgrade. If you are not sure how to extend your partition, I suggest you to look up online as there should be plenty of guides to help you with that. that is the last reply i got please tell me what to do now ?

    OVH offers the following guides that you may find helpful: OVH : VPSLinuxPartition This assumes you are not using the OpenVZ platform. Thank you.

    The forums are not intended for the exchange of authentication details. Feel free to open a support ticket using the link in my signature if you want us to take a closer look. Keep in mind that partitioning a drive falls outside our scope of support, so at best we are going to simply review the system and link you to a tutorial. You can post the ticket number here should you decide to open a ticket. Thank you.

    Reinstalling your OS is not typically required, so you may want to consult with a qualified system administrator or your VPS provider to determine why that was necessary. Thank you.

    OVH is 100% unmanaged so they will not touch your file system if you do not know how to partition a Drive then hiring a technician is you only option a reinstall is not necessary. microHOWTO: Increase the size of an ext2, ext3 or ext4 filesystem
