    HELP: /tmp and /usr issues


    I recently added a new customer to my server and now my /tmp partition is filling up, so I have added 'tmpwatch' to my cron's to try and keep it clean. Also, my /usr parition has had about 3GB added to it, and I don't even know what from, nor can I find it.

    I thought maybe someone might know what I can do about this other than removing the user from the server. I am running cPanel + WHM.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Sounds like normal stuff to me? All Clients will use the tmp & usr directories for various files. Could be this new Client has a busy site (perhaps in mysql db's) or temporary high usage as they transfer and setup their account. - for all your Hosting needs

    It's completely full at the moment! (100%). It's to the point where I can't even access any other scripts or anything.

    This is all part of managing a system. If you can't handle such a small task, how can you handle managing a linux system itself?
    Go through and look for what's taking up so much space in /usr and /tmp and clean it out, pretty simple.
