Just looked up gparted, and it looks like just what i could need. Sorry for all the questions, I seen on the website the GUI. Is it rather easy to use without messing up via the command line? I only ask as i have rather a few sites hosted you see.

Thanks alot for all the help.

Plesk is just software on top. The resize of partitions can be handled by GParted.

`sudo apt-get install gparted`
`sudo apt-get install vnc4server`
`sudo apt-get install xorg`

You may need to adjust these commands for your distribution of linux but the package names should be the same.

Then start a vnc4server session

`vnc4server`

... You will be prompted to define a password.

Then login with your preferred client.

Hopefully you should get at least a basic terminal when you view the screen. If not you will need to edit the vnc startup file.

From the terminal typing:

`gparted &> /dev/null &`

..will open up GParted and free up terminal in the process.

GParted is simple to use.. graphical representation of your hard discs.

I think your drive is dynamically expanded, so you'd have to do this yourself.

Simply purchase extra space in the Manager. It is expensive on the RPS however, since its not a "professional" server and uses ISCSI not an IDE/SATA hard disk.

Hi, i've new to the rps thing. I have managed to setup my rps with plesk and it's installed on centOS. What i was wondering is, if i order extra hdd space for my rps, is there anyway to use this space within plesk? as of now i have 2 partitions of 5gb each. The partition with plesk on only has 3gb of space left. If there is a way of adding extra space for plesk to use, could someone show me how please?

Thanks in advance.

P.s i am a novice with this sort of stuff.
