That solved my problem thank you Colin.

Stopped MySQL, unmounted /dev/da1p1 -> /db, removed old MySQL data files, remounted da1p1 & restarted MySQL.

I have a problem with / currently being at 108% capacity. I have found a previous thread in the archives which explains a few questions but I can't find what is taking up all the additional space. At best without
destroying what I still do not understand I can manage to get / to
about 101% capacity.

To answer a couple of potential questions straight up, there is
nothing in /root and /tmp is on a separate partition.

It is possible that you have mounted a filesystem onto a non empty directory. The stuff in the dir used as a mount point will be hidden by the mount.
