    Error Message:
    The /usr, /, or /var partition on this server is running out of disk space. This WHM operation has been temporarily suspended to prevent something bad from happening. Please ask your system admin to remove any files not in use on that partition.


    Suffice to say I can't do much except look at the WHM.
    I got that message while trying to create a new account :(


    And I have not idea where to ever START to try to fix this.

    By the way this is my root server.

    Thank you in advance.

    Go on, have a guess
    That / partition really is too small, especially as it's also holding your kernels. cPanel's recommendation is for a 1GB / partition, which is a bare minimum. You're going to have to have a scour of the root partition to find anything that cam be moved or removed. Although, personally, I'd have it reformatted with a more sensible partitioning scheme, or even having everything installed under a single root partition since the disk is so small.
