ERROR 1006 (HY000): Can't create database 'myTable' (errno: 28)

Reason: This error may occur when you do not have enough space on your server (HDD).

If you get his error, you need to check all filesystems where MySQL operates. It may be a single filesystem or as we recommend you can have datadir, tmpdir and log files split into dedicated filesystems. - MySQL docs

Solution:
  1. Stop your MySQL server.
  2. Check filesystem space (command: df -h).
  3. Free up space by removing unwanted files.
  4. If you get this error on your Hosting database server (GoDaddy, Hostgator, etc) do check your space limit.
