It is an error about the file system itself being in read-only mode, which is pretty serious. You would need to get ahold of your datacenter, NOC or hosting provider to ask them to reboot the system and run a file system check when the system has been taken down. Please ensure you have full account backups off the server before having the system rebooted.

Are you able to create files in /var location now? Are you getting any further file system read only mode alerts anywhere?
