Error: you may be over quota: Bad file descriptor
« on: 05-05-2018, 09:47:48 »
Hi Guys,

I am a SEO guy and do not have enough knowledge about web development and coding. So i need your help on the below mentioned problem.

Actually, I was just setting up a 301 redirection (in .htaccess file through cPanel) on 1 url on my site and found below error message while saving the file:

"you may be over quota: Bad file descriptor"

I did some Googled about this error and found some reasons/suggestions like: my disk is full, upgrading the existing hosting plan, remove some unnecessary files from the root and free some space, deactivate the plugins etc.

Thereafter, I removed the newly added line and save the file (old existing file) but still i am getting the same error message. Why I am getting this message if i did not add any extra word in the already existing files?.

I am just adding half line in the .htaccess file for 301 redirection and found this error message. Can adding a half line can also create this error?

Can I solve this issue in any other way (except the mentioned reasons/suggestions)?

What is the best way to solve this issue?

Do I need to follow the mentioned Reasons/Solutions only?

I need your help.

Frameworks: PHP
Web Server: Apache
Document Information: HTML5

waiting for your response.

The error like “Could Not Write You May Be Over Quota” may be related to your disk space. If the disk usage is full, you have to face the error. If your website needs a large amount of space, you should buy a large web hosting plan. Otherwise when your website size increases you will hit the error like above.
