If you are on a shared account with us, then this limit is not available to be adjusted. However, if you are on a VPS or Dedicated server and have root access, you can change the limit by editing the /etc/pure-ftpd.conf file. The line you want to edit is below:
LimitRecursion 8000 8
The first number is the file number limit, simply change that to a higher number.
Once the edit is made and the file is saved, you will need to do a service restart for apache to allow the change to take place.
My client is new to INMotion and is on the Business Hosting Power plan, which I guess does not allow for increasing the 8000 limit? If so, my only option is to delete the entire directory and then upload all the changed files. This is unfortunate as it increases the bandwidth usage dramatically.
