Thanks for the tips.
It turned out that mySql puts its datadirectory under /var/lib/mysql by
default, and our search-engine had filled-up the diskspace.
I moved the mysql datadir to /home, and put a symlink pointing to it.
It took me all day to get everything working, while the final solution would
have taken 10 minutes for an experienced user, but I learned a lot along the
way, so it was worth it.
