Ftp error 553 Disk full

Approx. read time : 2 min

When I am going to upload some files from my ftp account, getting following error :

Ftp error “553 Disk full – please upload later”

But the quota for my account showing we have sufficient space for uploading data. Then why this error generated ?

Hey guys here is the solution.
This error is occurred due to there is no more space is available on server. Then login via ssh to your server and check the MaxDiskUsage as follows :

#grep MaxDiskUsage /etc/pure-ftpd.conf

MaxDiskUsage 90 Then increase it to 99 and restart pure-ftpd. If it’s not working then check the disk space of server with following command and delete the unnecessary files, data from your server.

#df -H

df displays the amount of disk space available on the file system containing each file name argument. Filesystem, Total Disc Size, Total Disc Used, Total Disc Available, Use% – Total Disc Use in %, Mounted on – Where do you mount this Filesystem.
e.g

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/home 144G 59G 78G 90% /
