It looks like that your server is running out of disk space. You can check that with this command:

df -h

My guess would be that the server ran out of space and MySQL crashed, that is why you are getting the first error. The second error on the other hand is self explanatory: No space left on device.

You would have to extend your disk space or clear some old files in order to free up some space and then start MySQL.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
