Question

Full disk causes database error?

Unsure what has happened here. Our servers disk hit 100% usage because of a number of large image files on the server. I increased the capacity of the server so it should now have space, but any time I try to access the site I’m getting a Database Error that is suggesting the database server is down.

When checking the statistic graphs on digital ocean I see ‘no data’ for disk usage, memory, cpu etc for the last 24 hours. It seems like the data just cut off the second it hit 100% disk usage. Is there anything else I need to do after resizing? The droplet is turned on.

I increased the capacity of the server

How did you increase the capacity of storage? Via Volumes or Spaces? Or via the usual “Resize” feature in your droplet?

Also, what database are you using? If MySQL, I’ve had issues with MySQL not starting recently because it’s choked up itself through binlog files.

You might wanna check that too.
