  • It is always helpful if you can state the checks you've made and the blogs/articles you've looked at?

    Otherwise my first response would be to check that you've got content databases attached with space for new sites.

  • This error message is very opaque. It's asking you to check for enough space rather than telling you that you have no space. So, as Alex mentions, the first thing to check is the available space within your content databases.

    I'd also suggest keeping an eye on the ULS logs as other stuff, such as locked database or a corrupted back-up file can also cause these error messages.
