  • Private Messages - Got error 28 from storage engine???

    Find that today I can't get into private messages on my forum - I get a database error with a message:

    Invalid SQL:
    MySQL Error : Got error 28 from storage engine
    Error Number : 1030

    Any ideas what this means and how to fix?

    Same error here, just started today only it's my whole site, not just certain areas:

    LEFT JOIN user AS user ON user.userid = node.userid
    LEFT JOIN cms_sectionorder AS sectionorder ON sectionorder.sectionid = node.parentnode
    AND sectionorder.nodeid = node.nodeid
    LEFT JOIN cms_node AS parent ON parent.nodeid = node.parentnode

    WHERE != 1 AND node.nodeid IN (1,3) AND ( (node.permissionsfrom IN (1,45)) OR (node.userid =2) OR (node.permissionsfrom IN (1,45) AND node.setpublish = 1 AND node.publishdate <1270738541))AND != 1 AND node.hidden = 0

      Just to note:

      I searched for "Got error 28 from storage engine" error and it referred to mysql cache being full. I called my host and they cleared the cache, my site is back.

        Deb, you did exactly the right thing.

        Error code 28: No space left on device -
        One or more partitions on your server is out of space or doesn't have enough space to complete this operation. You need to shutdown your forums and contact your host immediately. You or your host will need to find out which partition is low on disk space and either add more space or free up some.

        Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.
