Hello :)

You will need to delete some existing files so you can create that file on the root partition. The following command may help, depending on the version of cPanel installed on your system:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/purge_dead_comet_files
Otherwise, review /root/tmp to see if there are any files you do not require.

Thank you.

Thank you Michael for your answer,
I tried this, the command has been executed, but nothing changed.
Were you able to review the /root/tmp directory to see if there are temporary files you can remove?

Thank you.
