What does inodes mean?

A inode is a file system object. That can be a file or a directory. The size does not matter in this case, as a 1mb or 1gb file use one inode.

There is a hard limit and a soft limit. The soft limit is what is advertised, when reached you will get a notification or see it in cpanel. There is some extra room however. If the hard limit is reached then no new files can be created.

Accounts at 150,000 inodes on shared hosting (cpanel shared hosting excluding windows asp or wordpress) do not automatically back up.

Thanks for your reply. I noticed that the number of inodes is growing much faster than the number of files and folders. Files and folders at me now are less than 100 thousand, and inodes already 315 thousand.

I suspect it may be .cagefs/tmp not clearing. Open a support ticket in my.interserver.net and we will check.

This morning there were 315,000 inodes, and now I looked, already 330 thousand. I tried to open a ticket in support, it did not work: "Invalid CSRF Response"

My problem was solved, thanks! The support service has deleted unnecessary session files. Will I be able to delete these files myself in the future, or should I contact support again?

This can be added in cron in cpanel

/path/to/tmpfolder should be your tmp folder like

/home/username/.cagefs/tmp/

add -v for more output (verbose)

I recommend opening a ticket to have this done.
