    I wanted to increase my disk space of my AWS server. Can I do that in Laravel Forge?


    You cant do it in forge. You will have to access your AWS server.

    (1) Create a snaptshot of the volume of your EC2 instace

    To do this go to Elastic Block Store > Volume

    and then right click of the instance you want to change the volume to

    (2) Click “Modify Volume” and enter an amount and click Modify

    that will change in the AWS console only and you will have to go to the terminal
    to make actual changes in your server

    (3) SSH to your server and issue command

    sudo growpart /dev/xvda 1

    Enter your sudo password you obtained when configuring server via Laravel forge

    (4) Issue command sudo growpart /dev/xvda 1

    (5) Then issue command sudo resize2fs /dev/xvda1

    That should do it
