    I am getting the following error this morning on all my websites:

    Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: open(/tmp/sess_1e362fd4b0097a7f6360153af70d26a3, O_RDWR) failed: Disk quota exceeded (122) in /home/donor/public_html/include/session.php on line 46

    Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cookie - headers already sent by (output started at /home/donor/public_html/include/session.php:46) in /home/donor/public_html/include/session.php on line 46

    Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at /home/donor/public_html/include/session.php:46) in /home/donor/public_html/include/session.php on line 46

    It appears nothing can be written to the /tmp directory... or more than one sess* file created in that directory per user. My disk has plenty of room on it.

    The error mentioned disk quota, not disk space. That means disk space is likely available (especially given your post), however, the user that owns that file is not permitted to create more files due to disk quota enforcement.

    The other errors are merely the result of throwing the first error results in HTTP headers already being sent, thus no additional HTTP headers can be sent (including to set cookies).
