    did you try to google or yahoo search:

    write failed, user block limit reached

    Sounds like you ran out of some kind of room either due to quotas or some other limits.

    Is this a virtual server ?

    Yes is a virtual server...
    I already searched google and know the problem is with the disk quota maybe it was bad configured at the setup.. I really don't know, that's why I am asking.

    On sda5 I have the / partition... including home, and the system directories. /tmp /boot are the other partitions..

    root@server [~]# quota
    Disk quotas for user root (uid 0): none

    root@server [~]# df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda5 71G 35G 32G 53% /
    /dev/sda1 99M 11M 83M 12% /boot
    /dev/sda3 1012M 36M 925M 4% /tmp
    none 506M 0 506M 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sdb1 74G 20G 50G 29% /backup/cpbackup

    Also the fstab is well configured for this partition:

    root@server [~]# cat /etc/fstab
    /dev/sda5 / ext3 defaults,usrquota 1 1

    Any ideas, pleaseeeee ?

    thkz!

    If its a VPS, the hosting company do set a Quota limit for each VPS on the main VPS server. There are Disk quotas set for each VPS to control the number of inodes a vps can use. You will have to ask your hosting company to change the quota limit for you. It seems you have reached your Hard limit. You will not be able to sort this issue at your end.

    Hope this will sort out your issue.

    That error happens when you are over the quota, and you try to write to the disk.

    In your case looks like one (many) of your hosted site over the quota, and when they try to write to the disk you get that error. Check site(s) which are over the quota.

    hope that helps
