Hello Germaine, I think your disk space may be full resulting on this error. Maybe you can call up your web host to check. If you are using Vodien, the number is 6288-6264.

Yes, I’ll call vodien. Thanks Paul for the advice. Sounds like I have to pay more to get more disk space :(.
Has anyone here run out of space before? Fast forward, if we owned a domain for a long time and we have been inputing data frequently, wouldn’t we encounter this problem at some point in time? This is especially so if we have a lot of images to add in our website. Do we just keep adding/buying disk space from the host provided?

Hi Germaine, if you have the basic plan from Vodien, 5GB should be more than enough unless you really have a lot of pictures. If you really do have a lot of pictures, this is my advise.

1) You should save under .jpg or .jpeg instead of .png (the size is easily 50% smaller).
2) Compress your images before you upload. You can consider of installing this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/tiny-compress-images/

That should work!

Hi Alan,
I called Vodien and was told that there are a lot of core-dumping files in the public_html/wp_admin folder. They wrote a script to prevent this from happening again. I’m glad this issue is solved.
On the other hand, thanks for the great tip on saving images under .jpg or .jpeg and the useful plugin for compressing the images!
