Error 1006 (errno: 28)

Recommended Posts

When I try to create a new database I get the error:

ERROR 1006 at line 1: Can\'t create database \'teenchat\'. (errno: 28)

 

I\'ve looked around and i think the error 1006 means that a database can\'t be created and the errno number is why.

 

I ran $perror 28 and it said:

Error code 28: No space left on device

 

I threw away the log files of different directories on my server to free up space but what does this mean? And how do I fix it? Do I not have enough space on my server? in a particular partition? or something else?

 

Please help me out. Everything was working fine yesterday and now I\'m getting this error.

I called \'df -h\' and it shows that dev/hda3/ is 100% full. Anyone know what this is? or how to empty it?

Well that\'s a partition of your harddrive. Whatever filesystem is mounted there is full. Note the filesytem mount that\'s displayed as Mounted on.

 

You\'d have to delete files from the filesystem to clear up space if you needed to write more data there. MySQL databases are a series of files, so if MySQL is configured to write it\'s data on that mount, you\'re going to get an error.

I found some filled up mail logs and deleted them, i\'m down to 64% free space I guess thats enough.
