    I am using the autoinstaller feature of 8.3.0 to try and upgrade to 9.2.2 however the install is failing with the following error and I now have a half broken 8.3.0 install :-(

    Any ideas what would be causing it and/or how to work around it?

    Many thanks!

    Hello,

    Please execute the following command on your server and post the result here:

    df -h

    Also please make sure that you are using the latest version of autoinstaller.
    You can download it on our website:

    Hello,

    The error message means lack of memory. Please, check the resources on the server:

    # cat /proc/user_beancounters (just in case you have Parallels Plesk Panel (PP) installed in the container)

    Please, check the follwoing article for more information:

    Also please, check the available disc space:

    #df -h

    Thank you

    Hello

    I see in the error log: "not enough free disk space left". You need to check whether there are free disk space available, it is possible to do with:
    df -h
    command.
    Also, if it is virtual server you need to make sure that there are enough resources, you can do it with
    cat /proc/user_beancounters
    if there are failed counters - you need to increase these values.

    Thanks for the replies everyone and yes it is definitely a memory issue as you suggest - to get around it I ran the installer in interactive mode, and de-selected installing the applications library, and this got past this stage.

    It is running on a dedicated virtual server at MediaTemple

    Disk Space:
    [root@xxx local]# df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/vzfs 20G 7.7G 12G 40% /
    simfs 20G 7.7G 12G 40% /tmp
    simfs 20G 7.7G 12G 40% /var/tmp
