Cpanel gave me following error when i am trying to create new email. what does that mean.

Error: The disk-write test failed to write 1 MB to a temporary file (/home/webname/.cPquotatest.5bc57cfd.20c0.42a4900) because of an error: open(/home/webname/.cPquotatest.5bc57cfd.20c0.42a4900): Permission denied (EUID: 502).

i am using cpanel version 74.0.9

If you've set unlimited to the actual cPanel account (not the email account) the issue wouldn't be the quota.

Can you please open a ticket using the link in my signature? Once open please reply with the Ticket ID here so that we can update this thread with the resolution once the ticket is resolved.


Thanks!

I had this exact same problem and the issue was fixed by logging into WHM CloudLinux LVE Manager and tweaking the inode limit for specific user... lol.

WHM >> Home »Server Configuration »CloudLinux LVE Manager section

Remember to delete the unwanted emails to free up inode usage.
