    disk space gone?

    I have an RSE account with OLM and I typcially have about 2 - 2.5 gig free of disk space on my server.

    Last week my free disk space was 0, and I found that I have about 2 gig of files in my /tmp dir.

    These are pretty big files (one was 400 meg) and they all end in .wrk

    What are these files?

    Can I delete them?

    Question !!!

    Are you using mod_gzip???

    I sure am. Is this a problem?

  4. #4
    I did some research on the web about mod_gzip (thanks for the info sitekeeper) and I do think this caused the problem.

    I made a few changes to my httpd.conf like setting maximum file size and excluding a few additional mime types (audio, video, etc.) and I hope this will correct the problem.

    Question Mod_Gzip

    Did you fix your problem? If so, it might be helpful to others if you post what changes you made.

    The problem does appear to be solved, however I will continue to observe it for several weeks to be certain.

    In my case I made a few changes to httpd.conf.

    First I set the maximum file size:

    mod_gzip_maximum_file_size 100000


    Then I excluded certain mime types that don't compress very well anyway:

    mod_gzip_item_exclude mime ^image/.*
    mod_gzip_item_exclude mime ^audio/.*
    mod_gzip_item_exclude mime ^video/.*
    mod_gzip_item_exclude mime ^multipart/.*


    And finally, make sure this line is present (mine already was):

    mod_gzip_keep_workfiles No
