However I’ve waited a couple days for cPanel to update the inode quota, and it still says “6 of 30019”. And, by my count, I’ve got only 1800 files/directories total that I’m trying to upload. (Nowhere near 30000.)
So I suspect maybe the quota needs to be reset or something? Thanks.
I am using ncftp to do a “put -r htdocs/” command, it’ll go along fine for a while and eventually it hits the limit and results in this:
MKD htmstuff failed; [Can’t create directory: Disk quota exceeded]
MKD htmstuff/balls failed; [Can’t create directory: No such file or directory]
MKD htmstuff/bars failed; [Can’t create directory: No such file or directory]
MKD htmstuff/icons failed; [Can’t create directory: No such file or directory]
MKD htmstuff/backs failed; [Can’t create directory: No such file or directory]
MKD htmstuff/animated failed; [Can’t create directory: No such file or directory]
And then nothing else can be uploaded and the FTP session times out.
My local directory that contains all the files I’m trying to upload only contains about 1800 unique files and directories. Some of the files are larger (several megabyte videos generated from Google Earth), which likely take multiple inodes. But still I see no reason that I would be hitting the 30000 inode limit.
I understand this isn’t a file storage service. As I said, I manage this for a friend. Quite possibly there is some stuff that’s not strictly web content. But the majority of this is legitimate web pages and related content. He and his son do hot air ballooning, so there are many photos, map images, and track videos that they provide for their clients.
I did check cPanel again just now (another 24 hours later) and it still reports 0 % (4 of 30019) inodes.
Anything else we can do here? Your help is appreciated. Thanks!
