The site no longer displays the engine list:

Anyone know if this is a temporary issue?

Thanks,

It's just temporary. I got a PM from Ron Murawski's right hand man Norbert Raimund Leisner, who stated that he and Ron are currently editing the list, working on removing broken links and other issues.

Hi Carl,

The server ran out of storage space. Although the drive holds multi-terrabytes, all of the free space was used up. According to the backup logs, the amount of storage has been growing at an alarming rate lately. The server also hosts about a dozen other websites and some other miscellaneous stuff. I need to determine if it is the Computer-Chess Wiki website or one of the others that has gone rogue. Or, maybe it is one of my sons who is using the server as temporary miscellaneous storage and forgot to turn off the data spigot.

For now I freed up about 9 GB, and the website works again, but 9GB is just a tiny drop in a huge bucket.

Ron

Ron, this command is useful for spotting folders >= 1GB.

Code: Select all

du -h -d20 -t G
An explanation...
The command 'du' (acronym for disk usage) is likely installed on the server.

DESCRIPTION
Summarize disk usage of each FILE, recursively for directories.

Example usage:

Output disk usage in 'human readable' (-h) format to depth 20 (-d20) and exclude entries smaller than gigabyte (-t G)

Code: Select all

du -h -d20 -t G
Documentation:
https://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/ ... invocation

Hi Jesse,

du is an old friend. My main trouble is lack of free time not lack of knowledge. But thanks anyway.

Best regards,
Ron
