Resizing (increase) a partition of a fresh install through Cockpit

asked 2017-01-25 08:15:02 -0500

Recently installed Fedora 25 Server on a box with a 1TB HD. Not sharing this drive iwth any other OSes

Finished install and updated the system, and configured Samba and MySQL.

I tried to move a 60GB file to this system and was told that there isn't enough space. The drive is only configured to hold 15 GB. I did not custom configure the partitions on install - I assumed the free space would be automatically allocated.

I connect to the box through Cockpit (192.168.1.X:9090) and went to the storage area, but cannot figure out how to resize the partition. I am not really confident using the command line tools to do this.

you best option is to resize your partition using ssh terminal with lvm there are many tutorial in google.
