My VPS shutdown because the HDD is filling up and I realized that the microcache.log file is becoming 12GB after I delete it. The content of microcache.log file is: - - [12/Jun/2014:16:09:45 -0400] "GET ib.adnxs.com/ttj?id=2168123&position=below HTTP/1.0" 502 166 "battercar.com/?p=436" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10_4_11; en) AppleWebKit/528.4+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0dp1 Safari/526.11.2" nocache: - - [12/Jun/2014:16:09:45 -0400] "GET ib.adnxs.com/tt?id=2962937 HTTP/1.0" 502 568 "existeducation.com/tag/tap/" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US) AppleWebKit/532.0 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/ Safari/532.0" nocache:

(continues thousans of lines...)

How can I repair my VPS? I got tired to delete this file everyday.

First you have detect large files with this command : 

# find /  -type f -size +50M -exec ls -lh {} \; | awk '{ print $5":" $6 $7 " : " $9 }' |sort -n

it will give some outputs like this : 
51M:Jun16 : /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/whostmgr
52M:Jun16 : /home/virtfs/newandro/usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/xml-api
52M:Jun16 : /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/xml-api
52M:Jun18 : /home/virtfs/newandro/var/log/chkservd.log
52M:Jun18 : /var/log/chkservd.log
53M:Jun16 : /home/virtfs/newandro/usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/whostmgr2
53M:Jun16 : /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/whostmgr2
57M:May6 : /home/newandro/public_html/326.zip
then you have delete thele large files with this command
 find  /.file..path../ -name 'microcache.log'  -exec rm {} \;

Hi, I deleted my /home/virtfs/userreseller/usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/xml-api . everything works except for the backup restoration. i get the error : Could not add “bambootr” to the restoration queue (No response from subprocess (whostmgr (xml-api)): The subprocess exited with status 2 (ENOENT).).
How do i get the deleted file back?
