Description

I recently lost access to one of my servers and managed to finally get access, and when I did I found an errors stating "out of disk space" and "out of inodes". Running a `df -h` showed that I still had plenty of space left. This is how I managed to work around this error.

  • Display the free inode space:
    df -hi
    
  • Remove the ports tree:
    rm -rf /usr/ports/*
    

Freeing up any other additional space will help as well, but removing the ports tree was enough to get to where I can keep my users happy.
