    I keep receiving an email warning saying I've reached warn status
    However, when I run df on the server, it reports only using 65% on /. inode percentage is only 9%. I don't know why cPanel is reporting a problem. Any ideas?

    Hello,

    It's possible that some previously deleted files were attached to an open process, and that process closed, freeing up the additional space. The following document explains how to examine the source of the disk space usage:

    Thank you.

    I haven't received any cPanel warning emails in the past week, so it may have cleared itself up. I will keep my eye on it.

    I'm pretty rigorous when it comes to managing my disk space. I know I had some error log issues that were consuming space, but I took care of those, which got my disk space to the current level. That was why I was surprised to get the cPanel warning, when all should have been good. I'll report back if I get anymore warnings.

    I'm happy to see you haven't encountered the issue anymore since it was first reported. Feel free to contact us at anytime if you notice it happens again.

    Thanks!
