How To Resize an ext3 Filesystem

Published Date Author: , Posted August 31st, 2014 at 7:44:50am

I had to replace an ailing root volume on AWS, so I decided to double the size when I created the new volume from snapshot.

After booting, I realized that df still showed the old filesystem size of 10GB, not the new size of 20GB

Here is the solution:

resize2fs /dev/xvda1
