MySQL databases not showing up space in cPanel

When trying to view the databases from the cPanel interface of an account, you might end up with no values at all. However, if you check the backend, you can find that these database folders consumes space.

To fix this issue, SSH to the server and open the file :  /var/cpanel/cpanel.config and make sure the variable disk_usage_include_sqldbs is set to 1 ( instead of 0 )

Once that change is made, hit the following from the shell :

# /scripts/update_db_cache

This should fix the issue !


Run FSCK without password during the startup !

You might have a situation in which you need to run an FSCK in your server and you do not have a root password or you do not get the desired login prompt due to any disk issues, which might need an FSCK.

You can try the following steps to attempt an FSCK :

* Reboot

* Edit the grub

Edit grub entry by pressing ‘e’

Edit the kernel line by pressing ‘e’

Add the following at the end of the kernel line: init=/bin/bash

Press enter to save and ‘b’ to boot

The above given statement boots straight into a shell without any password. You can now manually run the FSCK using commands such as :  fsck -y /

According to the blog post by Microsoft this version of early build comes with lot of subtle changes and improvements, along with some more evolved features. Many of the changes were influenced directly by Windows Insiders feedbacks. One of those changes is the reintroduction of some Aero Glass elements in the UI. Also Microsoft promises to use insider feedback directly to shape how their feature teams operate, and they hope that Windows 10 will be the best version of Windows yet because the public have a direct hand in its creation.One other subtle change is that Microsoft has renamed its “Technical Preview” to “Insider Preview” to reflect the importance of the Windows Insider community in how they’re building Windows 10.
