I am login to the Linux terminal and the disk space got full now I am not unable to execute any the command and any other user not able to login on sever what can be done In this case ?

  • When I ran out of space on linux server I was always able to login and to run commands. Basically all you need is ls and rm to make some space. Maybe graphics login is not possible. Try login to tty (askubuntu.com/questions/467912/how-do-i-log-in-in-tty1).
