Support » Plugin: All-in-One WP Migration » Out of disk space

    Good afternoon.

    I have a problem when I try to make a backup. Gives me the error “Out of disk space. Cannot write to: /home/…/public_html/wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-wp-migration/storage/esiixwf7fu9q/database.sql. ” But I have 2.92G used for a total disk space of 14.65G.

    Can you help me?

    Thanks

    database.sql is the file where the plugin is going to store the database.
    If you have a lot of records, it can be quite large. Some plugins log login attempts and activity. This creates a lot of data in the database and I’ve seen databases grow to 10-20GB of size just from these records. So you can really be going out of disk space.
    The other possible issue here is that there is a limit on the maximum file size that you can create on the disk. Some shared hosting providers limit this to 2GB, some to 4GB, and some to 8GB.
    So when the database is being saved it reaches 2GB or whatever the limit is and then the filesystem does not allow the plugin to write any more data mimicking not enough disk space.

    Ask your hosting provider what is the maximum file size that you can create. Then ask them for error logs from apache/nginx/php and review the logs for issues around the time when you attempted to export your site.

    Hi

    The answer of my hosting.

    There is no maximum size for created files (or better it exists at the filesystem level but it would be even larger than the server size, not being applicable in this case). The size of the databases is counted together with the space occupied by files, mail, etc (you can check the details via cPanel under “Disk Usage” ).

    Thanks

    Strange, I have 177.32MB and 34.39MB databases and 8.76% disk usage. I have a reseller account with A2 Hosting. Guess my next step is the dreaded trouble ticket.

    I’ve tried everything and the same error continues to appear.
