XF 1.2 Installation error (Server Error)

Just after clicking "Begin installation", after having verified that all settings were ok, I got this message with no way to continue or go back:

I did a search and found something looking somewhat like it. That user had solved his problem by reinstalling the package and running the install again. Also, for some weird reason my other mySQL database (one I used for the forum I'm currently upgrading to XenForo) seems to have become corrupted because of this. They don't have the same name of course.

Please advice.

That error code is for the disk/partition being full -- specifically /mysql-tmp. Either it is actually full or it's simply too small. I'd recommend contacting your host.

I'd go back to the beginning - you just finished creating tables so it shouldn't take more than a minute and it is a bit safer.

Do a completely clean installation - drop all of the tables and run the install script again.
