So Im having an issue w/ the dashboard, When I log on to the PFS, my dashboard is blank, has the logo on the top and when going into the interfaces I can see them.

So I think the issue is related to my drive being full... I remember seeing something about the drive being at 100% when the dash board was working. 

Anyway... Is there a way to clear up the logs or database? to free up space... I do not need to save any data, Just wanted to delete some of the data so I can get back into PFSense...

I think the reason why the drive is full due to a settings I set for logging and recording data from the firewall.

What about asking your drive, or more precis : the file systems ?
Enter console - go option 8 and type the max word :
Code: [Select]
If you can't understand the output of df, post it here, like :
Code: [Select]
[2.4.2-RELEASE][]/root: df
Filesystem                  1K-blocks    Used     Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ufsid/54ca20c41b3d50b0 298695208 1143932 273655660     0%    /
devfs                               1       1         0   100%    /dev
/dev/md0                         3484     180      3028     6%    /var/run
/usr/local/lib/python2.7    298695208 1143932 273655660     0%    /var/unbound/usr/local/lib/python2.7
devfs                               1       1         0   100%    /var/dhcpd/dev
procfs                              4       4         0   100%    /proc
procfs                              4       4         0   100%    /proc

In my case : close to 0% and 6 % - the 100 % lines are special cases.

Btw : log files are circular and can't fill up the file system.
And a pfSense which a huge set op parameters (config) won't use more then a couple of Mega ....

So, no, if the dashboard isn't showing up, it must be something else.
