mkdir: cannot create directory 'test': Disk quota exceeded - Solution

mkdir: cannot create directory 'test': Disk quota exceeded

You are out of inodes usually:

df -i
Filesystem            Inodes   IUsed   IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/simfs            200000  200000       0  100% /
none                   32768     151   32617    1% /dev
none                   32768       1   32767    1% /dev/shm

If this is an OpenVZ, you can increase the inodes, if it's not you need to run filesystem tools to increase the available inodes.

Check Indoes on filesystem:

tune2fs -l /dev/md0|grep -i inodes
Free inodes:              32575578
Inodes per group:         8192

eg. in OpenVZ set the inodes to 50 million:

vzctl set 30777 --diskinodes 50000000:50000000 --save
