Extend EC2 ext3 filesystem

#StandWithUkraine
Today, 1st October 2022, Ukraine is still bravely fighting for democratic values, human rights and peace in whole world. Russians ruthlessly kill all civilians in Ukraine including childs and destroy their cities. We are uniting against Putinโ€™s invasion and violence, in support of the people in Ukraine. You can help by donating to Ukrainian's army.

On Amazon console go to Volumes, Right-click on item attached to your EC2 instance, enter new size (In the example I extended up to 32G):

Extend EC2 ext3

Login into your EC2 instance and write:

lsblk

It will show partitions:

NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
loop0 7:0 0 93.8M 1 loop /snap/core/8935
loop1 7:1 0 18M 1 loop /snap/amazon-ssm-agent/1566
loop2 7:2 0 93.9M 1 loop /snap/core/9066
xvda 202:0 0 32G 0 disk
โ””โ”€xvda1 202:1 0 8G 0 part /

We see xvda with 32Gb and xvda1 with old size 8Gb, lets extend it.

Run:

sudo growpart /dev/xvda 1
sudo resize2fs /dev/xvda1

#aws #ec2 #resize2fs
