Alternate Day Backup Error


Verified User
I am encountering a weird issue of my daily backups resulting in an error but works the next day.

The error I am getting is storage related.

Error Compressing the backup file admin.root.admin.tar.gz : 
gzip: stdout: Disk quota exceeded
/bin/tar: /home/admin/admin_backups-biz/admin/admin.root.admin.tar.gz: Wrote only 4096 of 10240 bytes
/bin/tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

However, my VPS comes with 40GB storage and I am at 15GB even with the backups included.

It says literally what is says: gzip: stdout: Disk quota exceeded.

Check df -h and df -i for the details.

You need twice as much space relative to the largest account.
Because Directadmin:
1. Makes full (separate) copy of account.
2. Compresses this copy.
3. Removes copy.
