    Just upgraded my server to the lastest Freebsd release today and now when anyone goes into Cpanel it says :

    "Sorry for the inconvenience!
    The filesystem mounted at / on this server is running out of disk space. cPanel 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."

    The "/" partition is only 9% full and nothing else is full. Now nobody can do anything in their Cpanel panel and we are stuck. Anyone else see this so far?.

    :eek:

    I had this problem too. There's nothing like upgrading to a Stable version and finding problems out by having clients report them!

    This is due to a bug with FreeBSD's statfs library function which only affects some systems. Additionally, the problem can occurr seemingly out of the blue making it that much more difficult to detect and work around.

    At this time the best solution is to not use the statfs call. The alternative is to get the file system status from other sources not plagued by this issue. To force cPanel to bypass the statfs call, create a blank file at:

    /var/cpanel/disablestatfs

    This will result in a performance degrad, but you'll never receive an erroneous message about your file system being full.

    We're adding code to automatically detect this situation and bypass the statfs call. A few months ago this issue rarely occurred (in fact none of our test servers have this issue), but it seems to be becoming more common.

    What do you mean latest Freebsd release? How did you upgrade? What version are you on and what version are you upgrading too?

    We dont seem to have any problems with this. Is it dependant on the system? You said it was system dependant. We run Dual Opterons FreeBSD 5.4 and have never seen this issue. Hopefully, never will!
