My server on Ubuntu 13.10 gone in "Read-only file system".
How to resolve this?
Check with df -h first and post your result.

If you see overflow mounted as /tmp.

Try sudo umount /tmp

No clue of why the file is disappearing but someone may help.
I would recommend taking a snapshot of your droplet and then following this article: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-recover-from-file-system-corruption-using-fsck-and-a-recovery-iso. If anything goes wrong, you can restore the droplet from the snapshot and open up a support ticket.

Linux includes a filesystem checking utility called fsck that can be used to recover your system in cases of corruption. In this guide, we will discuss how to attempt to recover your filesystem if there are filesystem issues by using the fsck kernel and a recovery ISO.
