possibly you have soft-updates in your /etc/fstab on your /var partition. 
therefore your filesystem is claiming space for unwriten log files, etc.  so
you will not see them physically on the drive.  

reminder - this is not a windblows box - problems are solveable before
rebooting because there are logs, lots of applications to tell you what is
going on, and commands to just get things done.

lsof is a great application to load to see what applications are requiring
space on the partitions.  you could 'lsof | grep var'  to see this.  most
likely it is apache or something eating up room on /var

restarting the daemon and cycling your log files will help.  I do this
nightly.  Newsyslog for freeBSD does well and rotatelogs for Linux is good as
