Mysql Error: Can’t create/write to file (Errcode: 17)

Sometimes you may face the error for a mysql driven website. All of sudden a site has started to display this error:

Can’t create/write to file ‘#sql_5a0_0.MYD’ (Errcode: 17)

Its MySQL error, MySQL is saying the it cannot write to that directory. Its most probably related file exists in that directory. The/tmp is a folder used for temporary files and folders of all users on a server. In this case you need to empty the /tmp folder.

On shell

# cd /tmp

# rm -rf *.MYD

# service mysql restart

Its done!
