How to see the Inode Usage via cPanel

What is cPanel?

cPanel, a popular web hosting control panel, typically provides various tools and interfaces for managing your web hosting account and website performances and files, but direct access to view inode usage might not be available in the cPanel interface itself. However, you can use other methods to check inode usage on a server, especially if you have access to the command line or other administrative tools.

Optimize inode count

. Login to cPanel:

  • Access your cPanel account using your web browser. The login details are usually provided by your hosting provider.

2. Check cPanel Metrics (if available):

  • In some cPanel installations, you may find inode-related information in the « Metrics » section. Look for « Disk Usage » or similar options where you might see details about file and inode usage.

3. Use Command Line (SSH) to Check Inode Usage:

  • If you have SSH access to your server, you can log in using an SSH client (like PuTTY on Windows or Terminal on macOS/Linux). Once logged in, you can use commands to check inode usage.

4. Ask Your Hosting Provider:

  • If you’re unable to find the information through cPanel or command line, consider reaching out to your hosting provider’s support. They may provide specific tools or have insights into the inode usage on their server.

5. Use File Manager (if supported):

  • Some hosting providers integrate a file manager in cPanel that might provide a summary of your account’s file and inode usage. Explore the file manager within cPanel to see if it includes this information.
