There are two ways to add space to your Digital Ocean Droplet:
1.- By doing the Resize of our Droplet (an option that you find in the list of your Droplet, in the menu at the end that is shown with 3 dots “…”), which in addition to increasing your disk space will also increase the capacity of your Server. This is the most expensive option.
Take into account that if you choose this option, you must revoke the licenses of your Server before, since as the characteristics of your Droplet changed, the license will be automatically eliminated. Once you resize your Droplet, you can activate the licenses again.
2.- Create a Volume (Add Storage to Droplets), selecting the amount of disk that we want to add and associating this volume to our Droplet and writing the name that we want this volume to have and finally leave the option “Automatic Format and Mount” and We proceed to press the Create Volume button. This process takes a few seconds.
Now we go to the SSH console and execute the following command to check that the volume is okay:
df -H Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 494M 0 494M 0% /dev tmpfs 103M 549k 102M 1% /run /dev/vda1 27G 3.0G 23G 12% / tmpfs 513M 0 513M 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 5.3M 0 5.3M 0% /run/lock /dev/vda15 130M 12M 119M 9% /boot/efi tmpfs 103M 0 103M 0% /run/user/0 /dev/sda 107G 512k 101G 1% /mnt/volume_nyc1_01
In our case we create a Volume of 100 GB, which we see in the following line:
/dev/sda 107G 512k 101G 1% /mnt/volume_nyc1_01
Now we will proceed to create a folder:
cd /mnt/volume_nyc1_01 mkdir recordings
Later we move all the contents of the folder /var/spool/asterisk/monitor to /mnt/volume_nyc1_01/recordings
mv /var/spool/asterisk/monitor/ /mnt/volume_nyc1_01/recordings/
Since we no longer have the monitor folder where VitalPBX saved the recordings, we proceed to create a virtual link.
cd /var/spool/asterisk/ ln -s /mnt/volume_nyc1_01/recordings/monitor/ monitor
Finally we change the permissions so that Asterisk is happy.
chown -R asterisk:asterisk monitor
Now all the recordings will be and will be saved on this new disk.
