8GB Ant Media server

I am running an 8GB Ant Media dedicated server and I updated the version to the latest a few days ago. I downloaded 2 videos successfully on the server and when I try to upload the third video a 37.1 GB video, I get an error message when the upload ends , happened twice so far.

I have 89.8 GB / 157 GB storage space so 37.1GB should not be an issue but when I translated the log message , it translates to "No space left on device".

I root SSHed and deleted the failed to upload video to free the storage space and I have around 67GB free space but I know if I try to upload my third video that is 37.1GB in size, I would get the error message again which doesn't make sense.

If you know what is wrong please let me know thanks.

How did you ascertain the total space available on your machine?

Linode's recommended method of doing so is by running df -h

More information on this can be found here:

It may also be helpful to have the output of du -sh /usr/local/antmedia/

Also, is this a fresh install you are attempting these uploads on? This is a fairly common issue on older installs/machines.


I used both commands , I can't post a screenshot here but basically I should have enough space it says 87GB when I used du -sh /usr/local/antmedia/ and df -h its below :

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /dev
tmpfs 795M 976K 794M 1% /run
/dev/sda 157G 91G 59G 61% /
tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /dev/shm
tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock
tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs 795M 0 795M 0% /run/user/0

Originally I just checked through my dashboard to check my disk space as it says on there, this is a fresh install I am attempting these uploads on yes , I don't know why I get this.
