After I’ve checked, it was in fact my filesystem “var” full of inodes…

Thank you so much for tying to help me.

Have a nice day,

I have a problem related to the Asterisk CLI, when I enter "asterisk -rv", it cannot display the Asterisk CLI and instaed, I have this message "Unable to connect to remote asterisk (does /var/run/asterisk.ctl exist?)."

When I check with "locate asterisk.ctl", it is indeed in the repertory "/var/run/".

So after searching I have found we can enter "ps -A | grep asterisk" in order to find an asterisk "ghost" running and then kill it, and I have found:

1474 ?        00:00:14 asterisk
1615 pts/3    00:00:13 asterisk
31411 ?        00:00:00 safe_asterisk
31414 ?        01:08:53 asterisk

I don't know if it's the case and which one of these I should kill?

Furthermore, I can access to the CLI with “asterisk –cv” but I often got the following warning : “db.c:288 db_execute_sql: Error executing SQL (COMMIT): database is locked”.
Otherwise, is there another way to fix my problem?

Thank you in advance!

I would suspect that you have installed Asterisk in such a fashion that a particular user or user with certain permissions is required to access the /var/run directory, as well as other directories Asterisk uses (such as where it stores the AstDB).
You are then probably running the safe_asterisk script under a user without sufficient permissions, and/or running/invoking the Asterisk CLI (via "asterisk -rv") as a user with insufficient permissions.
I would double check:
(1) What user/groups own the various Asterisk directories (specified in your asterisk.conf)
(2) What user/group you are running the safe_asterisk script under
(3) What user/group you are running as when you attempt to connect to Asterisk
