I want to back up my WordPress site which is installed on a Digital Ocean droplet. Tried various backup plugins but none of them worked.

I am getting the below response when I try to install any plugin. Also, when I try to upload a file through the media tab of WordPress, the progress bar shows 100% but ends up with an HTTP error.

Warning: mkdir(): No space left on device in /srv/users/serverpilot/apps/jam-jam/public/wp-content/plugins/wp-clone-by-wp-academy/lib/functions.php 

Then, in terminal executed the following

root@ubuntu-1gb-blr1-01:/# ls
backups  etc             lib         mnt   run   swapfile  var
bin      home            lib64       opt   sbin  sys       vmlinuz
boot     initrd.img      lost+found  proc  snap  tmp       vmlinuz.old
dev      initrd.img.old  media       root  srv   usr

    tmpfs           100M     0  100M   0% /run/user/0

Then I tried executing the following the command

sudo chmod 777 -R /srv/users/serverpilot/apps/jam-jam/

Response from server:

chmod: changing permissions of '/srv/users/serverpilot/apps/jam-jam/': No space left on device

Also executed the following but same response :

 sudo chown -R serverpilot:serverpilot /srv/users/serverpilot/apps

ubuntu-1gb-blr1-01 1 GB / 30 GB Disk / BLR1 – Ubuntu 16.04.1 x64
Only 1 app (WordPress) installed through server pilot

Just a beginner in Linux. Looking for an answer.
