What are inodes? We examine what inode is, which is a frequently used and encountered expression in hosting services, and what inode limits mean. Inode is a recording system that keeps files, databases, directory/folder belonging to users, user's group, file or directory creation date, access permissions and similar filing system objects in your hosting account. In summary, the inode is the system that stores all the information except the file name. An inode record is created for each object (file) you upload to your website/hosting. What Happens If Inode Limit Is Reached? Topics Mentioned in This Content Once the set Inode limit is reached, no more files can be created in that web space. Exceeding this limit may also result in the website not working properly. In this case, the unused files, log files, images, e-mails and spam folder in the web space can be cleaned to provide a solution to free up space. How to Reduce Inode Count?
