    Hello, I'm having this error in WHM, when trying to list the server's accounts or when I try to modify passwords.

    The error_log has some entries like the one, bellow:
    Code:
    Cpanel::Exception::TempFileCreateError/(XID 44kj82) The system failed to create the temporary file “/var/cpanel/passtokens/1494262553.token.Q3Y5eVwG” because of an error: Input/output error

    I looked in /var/cpanel and the folder passtokens/ has the user:group settings as root():root() - no zero inside the parenthesis - and the permissions as 000.

    I've tried to change that via SSH, with no success. Any help will be highly appreciated.;)

    Regards,
    Ricardo

    Hello,

    This suggests a corrupted filesystem. Do you notice any output to /var/log/dmesg or /var/log/messages when this happens? Also, can you manually create a new file in the /var/ partition on the system (e.g. touch /var/cptest123)?

    Thank you.

    Hello, Michael, thank you for your answer.

    Yes, I can touch at /var/

    I looked more closely into /var/cpanel/ and the file dynamicui_grouporder has the same problem, and both files have a timestamp of 31-Dec-1969 21:00:00, but all other files look normal.

    Cheers

    Hello,

    Feel free to open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look at the affected system to see what's happening.

    Thank you.

    Looks like your system needs to be checked for disk / file system corruption.

    Hello,

    To update, it looks like this was the result of a corrupted filesystem.

    Thank you.
