    Hello there @doell!

     

    That kind of depends. It looks as if you may have an email compromise or a malware infection. I would run a malware scan on your website/hosting to see if that's causing the issue.

    @doell,

     

    Thanks for posting this question. I'm not sure if you're still experiencing issues, but the inode count can be reduced by deleting directories or other files. Locating where the usage exists on the server and the root cause of what is creating large amounts of inodes may require some detective/server administrator work though.

     

    When running your commands to try and locate where the usage is, you will want to ensure you’re running them with elevated permissions. Otherwise, your user may not be able to read all of the files and directories it needs to in order to get an accurate count. Depending on the environment and your configuration you may be able to elevate to the "root" user using "su -" or it may suffice to prepend "sudo " to your commands.


    We do currently offer a paid service that might help you to narrow down the cause of inode issues if you require additional assistance. Our support teams can be contacted if you're interested in that service.
