    Sorry for the inconvenience!
    The filesystem mounted at / on this server is running out of disk space. cPanel operations have been temporarily suspended to prevent something bad from happening. Please ask your system admin to remove any files not in use on that partition.


    and disk usage is below.
    # df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/md0 20G 20G 0 100% /
    tmpfs 2.4G 0 2.4G 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/md3 267G 56G 212G 21% /home
    /dev/md2 267G 5.2G 262G 2% /var
    /dev/md1 9.9G 153M 9.2G 2% /tmp

    You should delete old log files and generally files that eat up your space. I would recommend you to check /var/log and /usr/local/apache/logs for old log files. You should also check for core dumps from your kernel.

    First of all please execute the command
    df -k
    and post the results.

    In order to search your filesystem for core dump files execute the command
    find / -name core\.[0-9]\*

    This command will list all the core dump files on your system. If you find any delete them. You can force a delete automatically with the command
    find / -name core\.[0-9]\* -exec rm -f {} \;
    BUT i do not recommend you to use it if you are not absolutely sure how this command works.
