[SOLVED] Disk full, proxmox can't start

I have two LXC containers and one of them has grown too much.

I can do ssh and delete some files to recover space

find ./var/www/crm/public/attachment -mtime +365 -type f -delete

Now rpool/data/subvol-100-disk-1 have 43 GB instead 83.

But rpool/ROOT/pve-1 still have 100% usage.

I try to do pct resize, but it always say:

ipcc_send_rec[1] failed: Connection refused
ipcc_send_rec[2] failed: Connection refused
ipcc_send_rec[3] failed: Connection refused
Unable to load access control list: Connection refused

As i have not free space, i cannot run pct commands

try something like find /var/cache/apt/archives -type f -size +5M -delete to open up some space by deleting files from the apt cache.

that should open up enough space for you to figure out the rest of the problem
/backups ws an external NAS, but now is a local dir :'(

I can delete old snapshots from /backps and after reboot works fina again
