Random server reboots and partition clean up

I asked my hosting company to help me recover my root login password and they had to reboot the host in order to do that.

I was able to get access into root and webmin, however ever since the server came back online after the password change, it has been rebooting randomly whenever I restart the MySQL server or whenever I try to perform an action on the server.

The techs told me that they are not sure why the system keeps rebooting randomly and they are also having difficulties trying to do anything on the host without it rebooting.

All they were able to tell me was the following:

"The /var partition is out of inodes. This is due to log files under: /var/log/mysql/stable

You will need to clear these out in order to free up inodes on the partition."

and provided the following information:

highrate# df -h

What I need:

I need someone to go in and help me clear the /var partition and see if that fixes the random reboots on the server. If after cleaning the /var paritition the server is still having difficulties running properly, I still need the freelancer to be able to figure the solution to the problem

I have webmin and KVM access to the host.

System specs if needed:

Dual Quad Core Xeon 5410 2.33 Ghz running on Unbuntu

Habilidades: Administração de Bancos de Dados, Engenharia, SQL, Administrador do Sistema
