What does "Got error 28 from table handler" mean? Pages that link to <a href="http://ozoneasylum.com/backlink?for=5324" title="Pages that link to What does &amp;quot;Got error 28 from table handler&amp;quot; mean?" rel="nofollow" >What does &quot;Got error 28 from table handler&quot; mean?\

It means that your hard disk is full (probably in your MySQL database but it could be elsewhere and interfering with the free running of your database). Try clearing up some files, optimising or repairing your database. This problem can be serious as your MySQL is usually stored in a partition on your hard disk and this error usually means it is full - if it is you need to free up space or your data could become corrupt.
