New hosting account with DirectSpace.net Cloud Account VMwareVPS.8, everything was working fine till we got to 69 GB of the 124 GB allocated on hard drive space, then it would only upload a 0-4kb file and stop with this error:
Error: Could not write to transfer socket: EPIPE - Local endpoint has been closed
In the message log I get this:
Feb 8 22:34:32 [host-domain] proftpd: 69.xxx.xx.xxx (::ffff:204.x.x.x[::ffff:204.x.x.x]) - notice: user [user-name]: aborting transfer: Input/output error
Direct Space said they do not have any limits on FTP, which is what I would think from this error, and although we have plenty of hard drive space left, it seems like that is the issue.
How can I troubleshoot this?
Are there settings in Virturalmin that can do this?
Its on every account I tested; I never changed any FTP setting, or system settings, its running on CentOs 6.2 and php 5.3.3, with all the latest updates.
Doing an fdisk told the whole story, we have 128gb in the dirve, only 68.3 GB was allocated to the home partition, so we really were out of space, I will write up a requested feature to show partitions so its clear how much space is really available, since currently it shows the whole hard drive, which is not the case at all, its only what is assigned to that partition.
Hi Jeffrey, I’m having this problem on my Mac right now, trying to upload a backup file via ftp, using FileZilla. Unfortunately I’m not techie and I don’t know what an fdisk is, or how to check the partition… Could you please walk me through the steps you took to resolve this problem? Thanks.
Basically the problem was in how the VPS storage space was allocated, only the VPS manager can change the allocation, my hosting techs fixed it, you can not change the container size from inside it, hope that fully explains it, I had forgotten that the OS takes up a lot of space, log files about PHP errors used it all, clearing logs and turning off notices fix that.
