    vBulletin and (Errcode: 28)

    Hello

    I have a linux dedicated server and i've tried to install vBulletin all day long with no results. I have an 80 GB hdd mounted and only 24GB occupied, no other mysql databases on it. So i've been trying all day long to use vBulletin but right now I've checked my logs from /var/log/mysqld.log and noticed these message several times

    Number of processes running now: 0
    070115 11:41:20 mysqld restarted
    070115 11:41:20 InnoDB: Started; log sequence number 0 2874641
    070115 11:41:20 [ERROR] /usr/libexec/mysqld: Error writing file '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid' (Errcode: 28 )
    070115 11:41:20 [ERROR] Can't start server: can't create PID file: No space left on device


    What's happening ? How can I fix this issue ? I really want to have my board up and running

    Thanks, Dan

    how much do you know about linux? typically, the hard drive is split in to partitions, so are you sure that the partition that /usr resides on has enough space?

    download the PHP application phpsysinfo here: http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ease_id=483751

    extract the directory contained in that to your web directory. you can then use your web browser to see your disk usage by partition.

    are you on a dedicated server, or a shared host?

    is php running in safe mode? if so, that's why phpsysinfo won't run.

    from a command line, type df -k to see the amount of disk space available on each partition in kilobytes. then type mount to see which partition goes with which mount point.
