WordPress or Buddypress folder size dramatically increased in short period of time

    Hey everyone,
    I was just curious why my web folder space increased dramatically in size. I’m using WordPress 3.0.1 and Buddypress 1.2.6. The site hasn’t had an increase in traffic or uploads afaik. Any thoughts on why the jump in size occurred?

    Thanks,
    JP

    I think the ‘afaik’ would need to be confirmed wouldn’t it? otherwise we are simply being asked to speculate based on little actual information.

    What do you mean by ‘web folder space’ ?

    Was this change apparent after an update to 1.2.6 or did it simply happen for no apparent reason.

    Logs are always a good place to start looking for answers.

    Don’t be surprised if your log file is what’s taken up your space. Look through the folders and tell us what files are taking up the space and maybe we can help you more.

    Good point if your logs aren’t being rotated you’ll end up running out of disk space completely, I forgot about rotating a log tried to open it in my editor to scan through, it editor wasn’t happy at all.

    stats plugins can also be a big problem

    Great ideas! Going through each folder and checking the log file helped. Thank you @hnla @crashutah @rogercoathup
