phpBB Help

Hi guys...

When I go into the admin panel and go to Forum Admin -> Permissions or Forum Admin -> Pruning I get this error:

General Error

Couldn't obtain forum list


SQL Error : 1030 Got error 28 from table handler

SELECT f.* FROM phpbb_forums f, phpbb_categories c WHERE c.cat_id = f.cat_id ORDER BY c.cat_order ASC, f.forum_order ASC

Line : 169
File : /home/antispy/public_html/forums/admin/admin_forumauth.php

Any help on what to do?

Did you recently install any mods? If a mod was installed incorrectly, this may make that error message.

Hi guys, thanks for the replies.

1) That didn't help much, they said I don't have enough space but I have plenty.

2) Yes, just one, the random fact one.

mysqld error 28 is "No space left on device".

Typically this means the partition where your mysql data directory is located on the server.

What sometimes happens is people delete log files or something (not necessarly mysql log files), but dont restart the associated daemon service (eg; httpd) which means the kernel doesnt fully see the space as available again.

so, the problem IS a lack of disk space, even if "df" shows plenty.

Thanks jason.

Is there anything I can do to fix it?

If not what should I say to my host?

Also... I don't really care about pruning, I just want to be edit forum permissions.

It is a server related issue, so it is the responsibility of your web hosting company to fix it.

See URL:

If they argue about it and swear blind the disk is not out of space, then change company because they dont have a clue - to put it in the nicest possible way.

I would be very worried if my site were on a server with disk capacity at 100%, so you may want to consider changing provider for that reason alone.
