For most VPS providers I’ve seen, if you need more storage space you either:
- Upgrade your whole VPS plan.
- Buy additional storage volumes.
Now if you are running out of disk space, but your CPU/RAM resources are plenty, the additional storage volumes are likely the more cost efficient option. But these appear as a new volume on your server, while Discourse keeps running on the original volume where you installed it in the first place.
I could not find a guide or documentation on best practices how to either move Discourse to the newly added larger volume or what is the best way to make use of the added capacity?
For example on Digital Ocean if you upgrade your VPS plan you generally get 2x CPU and RAM, but only 10/20GB increments in disk space.
