    Hi there,

    Its 2nd time that I'm facing an unexpected odd behavior for litespeed
    it was down for many hours and auto-restart and 503 auto fix didn't make that online

    just found bellow error at my email:

    Attempts to create new directories or files whose filenames begin with numbers have failed.
    This is indicative of a root compromise of the server.

    The exact error encountered was:

    Failed to create directory /dev/null: Invalid argument

    one more thing, i got bellow error while trying to re-install lsws:

    ./functions.sh: line 1317: cannot create temp file for here document: No space left on device

    after pruning /dev/shm/lsws and /tmp/lsws seems to working
    here is df before pruning those directories:

    root@server12 [/usr/src/lsws-4.1.1]# df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda3 1.1T 146G 879G 15% /
    /dev/sda1 494M 30M 439M 7% /boot
    tmpfs 32G 2.7M 32G 1% /dev/shm
    /usr/tmpDSK 4.9G 2.6G 2.0G 57% /tmp

    would you please clear what was wrong with the space and lsws?

    bests,

    Maybe it is the inode limit for /tmp or /dev/shm, not disk space.
