    This is actually complaining about inodes, not specific free space.
    You'll want to take a look at your inode usage, perhaps clean some of that up? From in ssh (as root)
    Code:
    df -i

    Hello,

    Yes, as mentioned, this notification stems from your disk inode (number of files) usage. There's a command referenced on the following thread you can use to scan a directory to see what's using up your inodes:

    Inode Usage Stats

    Note in this case you would browse to "/" instead of "/home".

    Thank you.

    Consult with your server admin, we really cannot speculate in public forums.

    Is the command referenced in the thread linked in my earlier response helpful? It should help you to determine where the inode usage is coming from.

    Thank you.
