"no space left on device", when i restore the backup

OS type and version Ubuntu Linux 20.04.6

Theme version 21.09.5

hello, im trying to move my website and im using backup and i have 184.23 GiB and an extra 953.43 GiB but webmib saying i dont have enough storage?, i at first when i try to move the backup which i solved (go to Webmin Configuration and Advanced Options then change Temporary files directory to where the 953.43 GiB was mounted) and it works but when i do the restore file i have more then 400GB to restore it says no space left on device 184.23 GiB is not enough…, while i still have 953.43 GiB??? how can i solve this? can i mount 184.23 GiB and 953.43 GiB to be toghter? so i dont get this issue!

Perhaps, all space was allocated to /home partition and not much was left for /tmp, i.e. /tmp/.webmin to create a temporary file? In that case you may consider changing Webmin temporary directory in Webmin ⇾ Webmin Configuration: Advanced Options page.

I’m sorry, I just noticed that you have already tried changing Webmin temporary directory. I’m not sure then why it may not work. Probably @Jamie could provide some insightful ideas?

For now, could you provide the output of the following command:

df -h

@Ilia thanks for ur repond, and 953.43 GiB is mounted to datastore
maybe i should mount it to /home? ;/

What backup are you using and how? What is the size of the backup file?

around 260GB when its compressed, and tar file, and s3 bucket…

You have located /home under / which only has 162G available space left, right? What do you expect?

thats the point idk where 162G is located!..u think its on /home? but when i do df -h it shows “/”

You don’t have /home mounted as a separate partition, so it’s all under / (except /boot), which is only 162G.

so /home has 162G right?
also can i ask another question, when i move the server will the websites be created as they was?!

Based on your df -h command output, it is.

It will, if you use Virtualmin backup and restore feature.

thank u so much, u helped a lot :slight_smile:
