Ubuntu out of space

I recently received a message that I am out of space in ubuntu. I checked and It says I have used all 20 gigs. I have not used but maybe 30 megs. Any ideas?

What's the output of
df -h
?
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda 20G 20G 0 100% /


Here is an imagine of the same from a couple weeks ago. I have added very little code to it. My whole app is tiny.

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda 20G 3.1G 16G 17% /
udev 243M 4.0K 243M 1% /dev
tmpfs 99M 224K 99M 1% /run
none 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock
none 246M 0 246M 0% /run/shm
none 100M 0 100M 0% /run/user


Odd. You might be running out of inodes, what's the output of
df -hi
?
Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/vda 1.3M 144K 1.2M 12% /

Hmm.
I recently received a message that I am out of space in ubuntu.

Where did you see that message?
I saw it when I tried adding code to the server. Then i checked with the df -h and it said 100% was used.
Figured it out. unicorn.log was over 17.5 gigs. How in the world does that even happen?
