The /usr, /, or /var partition on this server is running out of disk space. This WHM operation has been temporarily suspended to prevent something bad from happening. Please ask your system admin to remove any files not in use on that partition.
I'm getting the above error when I try to make a new account in my WHM. I copied the below information about the server that I am on. Does that 97% with a red light mean the server I'm on is too full?

Well, I remember back in July 2003 I was called in on an 'emergency' status job (I'm a sysadmin). The /var directory was 97%. In this case, it had happened because there was an antivirus program on the server which was storing all emails that had been detected with viruses in the /var directory. The hosting company had aquired itself a virus spammer, and therefore totally clogged the /var directory. Simple solution for this situation was to remove the spammer and set the antivirus program to clear itself out every 6 hours.
There are of course many other causes of this sort of problem - large log files, etc.
