Maybe you are using limited hosting with a limit on disk space?

You will probably like to know the real weight of your blog, to better control your disk space mostly occupied by your media (since they occupy a significant weight on your blog).

Divi: The best WordPress theme of all time!

With over 901.000 downloads, Divi is the most popular WordPress theme in the world. It is complete, easy to use and comes with more than 62 free templates. [Recommended]

While it is true that most backup plugins generally provide an estimate on the size of your blog, the plugin Disk Usage Sunburst Provides a more user-friendly way to control the disk space used by your WordPress blog.

How to install the plugin

Disk Usage Sunburst is a plugin available on WordPress, so you can install it directly from your dashboard ou download the compressed version as a ZIP file.

After installing the plugin, you just need to navigate to the location " Tools> Disk Usage To see the graph generated by the plugin. This graph will take a little while to display. You will even be able to view the different directories of your WordPress installation that occupy the largest space.


One thing noticed during the plugin test is that the plugin doesn't show any indication as to the meaning of each arc. There is also a delay during the selection of an arc, especially since the generation of the graph takes time.

This plugin is certainly a good solution, but not very suitable for large websites, as it consumes a lot of resources. For the next updates we hope to see a control panel, already to simplify and lighten the plugin and more indication on each arc.

That's it for this plugin. Hope it will allow you to easily supervise the size occupied by your blog. Do not hesitate to share this source with your friends on your various social networks.
