How to fix “transfer aborted. disk quota exceeded” –

If you try to upload something you get “transfer aborted. disk quota exceeded”.

If you bought a webhosting package somewhere, the answer is simple: “You don’t have anymore space left”.
If this happens before the quota is exceeded and you have a root access to that machine, simple use this:

quotacheck -v -c -F vfsold -m /

and restart the quota daemon

/etc/init.d/quota restart
