How to fix 'ERROR 1030 (HY000): Got error 168 from storage engine'?

| | 1 min read

The MySQL 1030 error occurs due to the local disk space issue. The error typically occurs when the server MySQL runs from, utilises the total disk space and tries to execute any of the below mentioned tasks.

  1. Export or import a database
  2. Truncate or delete a database table
  3. Running a MySQL query
  4. Also, while trying to start a stopped MySQL service

To clear the issue, we will need to increase the server disk space or clean up the server disk space by removing unwanted files from the server. You could also look for log files using a lot of disk space or truncate the database log tables using additional disk spaces.
