Not really a wpForo issue, but you'd receive this error if the permissions are incorrect on your installation. Not trying to be condescending here, but Googling will give you what you're looking for on the first hit

What kind of hosting plan is that ? Shared ? Where ?

And please do not use the Post title as post body, i mean you wrote a huge title.

Hi @fjohn2619,

It seems the server is already full or you don't have appropriate disk and database space. Also, please check the server requirements may not pass to wpForo:
