AWS EC2 hosted wordpress , disk usage is increasing consistently

2020-05-23 wordpress amazon-ec2

I have hosted my website on AWS EC2. The website is built using WordPress. I am seeing weird behavior in my EC2 instance. The disc usage is consistently increasing even though I have not added or removed anything in the website.


root:/opt/bitnami/apps# df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev            1.9G     0  1.9G   0% /dev
tmpfs           391M  5.8M  385M   2% /run

tmpfs           391M     0  391M   0% /run/user/1000
root:/opt/bitnami/apps#

I am concerned about this usage: /dev/nvme0n1p1 25G 4.6G 20G 19% /

Just 1 hour back, it's size was around 3.6G

What could be the reason here? How can I solve the problem?
