Low disk space (self hosted)


  • Used Zammad version: 5.0.2
  • Used Zammad installation type: Package
  • Operating system: Ubuntu Server 20.04.3 LTS
  • Browser + version: MS Edge 97.0.1072.76

Current Problem :

The zammad server runs on an ESXi with enough free space.
I want to expand the current storage for Zammad.

  • Storage November 2021:
    Size: 15GB
    Used: 7,9GB
    Avail: 6,1GB
    Use%: 57%

  • Storage January 2022:
    Size: 15GB
    Used: 13GB
    Avail: 1,9GB
    Use%: 87%

How to proceed here?

Thank you all in advance


search for

“esxi expand volume linux guest ubuntu”

this is not zammad specific

I would recommend adding a new virtual disk on this VM and migrating Zammad data to it.


You can also expand the current virtual disk, but this could be hard to do if you are not a Linux expert.

This should answer all your questions:

this is the 2nd step

1st you need to increase the disk size in esxi (shutdown guest, edit size, reboot)
