I just noticed that the root partition of my not-so-long-ago configured server is only 5gb
thats not much seeing as i allready use 4gb and still need to install a lot of things...
i was foolish enough to use the default config from OVH assuming they know their stuff :P
since i have some data on the data partition it would be a pain in the ... to backup and reconfigure it all
is it possible to repartition the drive to use a new part of the drive say 15-20gb without data loss ? by simply copying the root partition to a new place (from sda2) ? i can live with loosing the 5gb of the start of the drive :P
