Hi there!

I guess, that your problem could be O.S. related and not Nginx related.
I meant, probably, you are using more files per directory than your O.S.
could support, in many cases, this limit is about 32.000 files per
directory, but it may depends of your filesystem.
take a look to the link below:

In order to solve this issue, you must add a two or three directory
structure. For example:

I guess your current directory structure is something like:

And you must try something like:
Or also works for somebody, to add a modulus function to the
for example:


Hope it helps.
