    Tell you the truth I dont have clue what happen I just know one of my site send for the first time more then 1000 emails today something that never happen .

    I saw some other post with error more or less like that and say something about mass email but I dont have storage issue but the solution did not help me.

    Anyone know what I need to do to bring back WHM live again cuz for now the only solution is the rebuild the VPS and that is big big problem for me

    Thanks for ever help me

    make sure that sufficient disk space and inode is available in /var patition by performing the command

    df -h

    df -ih

    Also check whether the file system is mounted as rw and check if you are able to create a file in the partition

    Hello :)

    Yes, check to ensure no partitions are at their space or inodes limit. Also, look in /var/log/messages or /var/log/dmesg to make sure there are no filesystem issues.

    Thank you.
