I was getting below error while accessing phpMyAdmin –

Cannot start session without errors, please check errors given in your PHP and/or webserver log file and configure your PHP installation properly. Also ensure that cookies are enabled in your browser.

Check the inode usage. If inode limit get exceeded then you’ll face this error.

Below is the Linux command for checking detailed inode Usage –

echo “Detailed Inode usage for: $(pwd)” ; for d in `find -maxdepth 1 -type d |cut -d/ -f2 |grep -xv . |sort`; do c=$(find $d |wc -l) ; printf “$ctt- $dn” ; done ; printf “Total: tt$(find $(pwd) | wc -l)n”

You can follow below steps to reduce the inode usage of your service –

1. Remove all files/folders you don’t need.

2. Check the number of cache files you have, applications such as Joomla can generate a lot of cache files; you should regularly check your cache folder and reduce the number of cached files you keep.

3. Make sure you check the mailbox regularly and delete all mails you don’t need.

4. Check your cPanel’s main email account regularly, the mails for it are kept in:
/home/username/mail/cur
/home/username/mail/new
where username is your cPanel username. You can manually delete the messages in these folders using cPanel’s File Manager.

4. You should also check your email accounts regularly and delete any spam messages from them.

5. If you have email accounts you don’t need or use, it would be best to remove them.


Note – Make sure to check the disk quota. It should not be exceeded.
