I notice something really weird, the cache folder in Joomla has a folder "Astroid" in it and within that are subfolder (see attachments).
Over the months this file seemed to get bigger and bigger and eat up the server resources (about 15GB). I first did not know what it was so I just deleted all the content in the cache and temp folders a couple of hours ago and this solved the problem.
However when I just checked back into this folders I already found new files in there starting to eat up server space.
The cache files grow bigger and bigger is because this cache is generated everytime you open the website. Each page you browse generates it's own cache stored in that file thus making its size bigger each time, this also helps in loading the website faster.
But now since the growing file size is an issue so we'll see what can be done there.
