Uuuups, something went wrong - Can't create any records

Hi there,
I’ve just installed Cockpit to try it out as the backend for a project I’m working on. Installation completed successfully and I can login.I have given write access to storage and all subfolders.

Unfortunately when I try to create a Collection, Region or Form I have an error saying:
500 Uuuups, something went wrong.

I copied the following information from the System Information page in case it helps.
Version 0.5.5

I assume I’ve done something silly in the installation so I hope this is an easy one to fix. Thanks!


do you have access to the php error log files?

Yes, sorry I should have included that in the first post. I reset the error log file and generated the error again. Here it is:

[07-May-2018 12:14:19 UTC] PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught exception 'RuntimeException' with message 'SplFileObject::__construct(/home/wordling/public_html/cockpit/assets/app/media/icons/plus-circle.svg): failed to open stream: Too many open files' in /home/wordling/public_html/cockpit/lib/Lime/Helper/Filesystem.php:48

Now that I see that error, it seems to be the same as this one: https://github.com/agentejo/cockpit/issues/743

I’m also using siteground.

I never experienced this issue before, is there a way that you contact siteground to increase the limit?

It’s shared hosting so I don’t think so unfortunately. According to the other post I linked to he already tried and could not increase the limit.

I think the limit is already at 1024 which seems like it should be enough.
