Hello World,

I got the following error message when I try to use the xfercpanel function in WHM:

"GET /xfercpanel/kellee88? HTTP/1.1" FAILED LOGIN whostmgrd: more than 400 attempts to create a session failed

Anyone seen this error before?

Please check the validity of /var/cpanel/sessions - I have recently found this to be a file instead of a folder on a server which was causing this error.

The error you received is saying it attempted 400 times to create a tmp file in /var/cpanel/sessions and couldn't.

Also this error comes when a VPS is hitting the limit of any QoS parameters, in my case it was DISKINODES, I increased its limit and the issue was resolved.

I sent a out a big mailing list and now I'm getting this error as well:

Internal Server Error

more than 400 attempts to create a session failed
cpsrvd/11.25 Server at dwhs.net

Everything is working and running correctly. I just can't login to WHM or cpanel.

Any ideas?

I ran /scripts/upcp but no luck I checked the directories and there is plenty of room in all of them.

What do you see under /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log file ? It's the cpanel error log file.
I found the error, the email spool queue was using too many inodes for that partition so I moved it to a bigger one and symlinked to the mail spool.

Im having the same problem.

Yesterday i sent about 140k emails, the server crashed and when rebooted mysql didnt started so i tried to access whm and recived the "Internal Server Error

more than 400 attempts to create a session failed" error.

So my question is how exactly do i move the mail queue to a bigger partition?
thanks.
