    The '/' (root) directory is filling up. Depending on how your server is configured, this could mean the entire drive or just that partition...

    You need to contact the tech folks at your host and have them check it. If you're not familiar with how to access that directory/partition, then you definitely don't want to go poking around in there :)

    My friend, if you don't know how to do this, you have no business running an unmanaged server. Having a dedicated server requires management by a qualified administrator. This is not optional. If you don't know how to do it, you need to hire it out.

    It is only a matter of time before you are hacked to pieces, and your box becomes a spam fountain.

    Do the right and responsible thing, and get yourself an admin. :)

    :D Bailey
