Yesterday I launched Amazon EC2 t.micro instance. When prompted to set HDD size, I put 30 GB size and type SSD. After successful deployment, I installed WHM CPanel on it. The install process took very long maybe due to low CPU (only 1 core for t.micro) and low RAM (509 MB).
SOLVED Why Amazon EC2 instance has only 8 GB spaces
The odd thing begin when I finished WHM/CPanel deployment. I got an email from WHM stating that my disk space only left 1GB out of 8GB total space. Where is the remaining 22 GB? Why only 8 GB?(30 GB – 8 GB).
Googled around and found a very simple solution for this. They said that the default EC2 instance on launch is mounted with 8 GB so we need to resize the partition using the following easy command:
On my EC2 instance the hdd main partition is mounted as /dev/xvde, please change it to refer to your EC2 instance HDD partition.
