MySQL error: The partition with /var/lib/mysql is too full!

An unusual error.

The fix for it is to restart MySQL

Look for the process

ps -aux | grep mysql
root      5314  0.0  0.1  11748  2220 pts/0    S+   11:18   0:00 grep --color=auto mysql
mysql    30357  0.2  8.5 825260 174464 ?       Ssl  Dec14   6:25 /usr/sbin/mysqld

Kill the process

root@localhost:~# kill 30357

Restart MySQL

root@localhost:~# sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start
 * Starting MySQL database server mysqld                                                                      [ OK ] 

Now your MySQL should be looking good!
