Using MySQLAn exception appears when clicking on a space. The following appears in the atlassian-confluence.log:

ERROR [TP-Processor28] [atlassian.confluence.servlet.ConfluenceServletDispatcher] sendError Could not execute action
-- url: /display/INFR/Home | userName: alyson | referer: ...
org.springframework.jdbc.UncategorizedSQLException: Hibernate operation: Could not execute query; uncategorized SQLException for SQL []; SQL state [HY000]; error code [1]; Can't create/write to file '/tmp/#sql_118c_0.MYI' (Errcode: 28); nested exception is java.sql.SQLException: Can't create/write to file '/tmp/#sql_118c_0.MYI' (Errcode: 28)


The 'Errcode 28' is an error from MySQL that occurs where there is no free space left on the disk.


Free up some disk space on the local drive that stores the MySQL database.
