    For some reason, it seems that I can't create new files and WHM has died on my server.

    When I try to write something as root via SSH I get an error that I've searched my quota as root!!!

    weird..

    I then deleted a few gig of data files that I had in my root directory and run "service cpanel restart", which brought the whole system back online.

    Then I tried to login to WHM as root and I received a message that my system is using "mbox" style emails !!!! WHAT THE F*??

    I clicked on "Tweak Settings" and everything is messed up, the entire configuration is wrong!!!

    Please help.

    Based upon your description it sounds like one or more files in /var/cpanel are now corrupted ( maybe zero length ). There may be other files on the system ( e.g. in /etc ) that are in similar condition.

    If you have system backups I recommend restoring the corrupted files ( starting with /var/cpanel/cpanel.conf ).

    You were right, I was out of disk inodes and things got corrupted :(

    Files under /etc were ok, but I restored a few files from /var/cpanel, not sure how to check if all of them are ok but everything is working fine now.

    Thank you.
