    2600 /tmp/*.wrk files : 40 GB

    I have found nearly 2600 .wrk files in /tmp dir, which take more than 40 GB. Is it virus or trojans work or what could be the reason?

    Well clearly the respondent does not know much. They are mod_gzip files.

    Do a rm -f *.wrk

    then

    service httpd restart

    in the httpd.conf you need to make

    mod_gzip_keep_workfiles Yes

    say

    mod_gzip_keep_workfiles No

    or if it dont exist add

    mod_gzip_keep_workfiles No

    to the modgizp section and restart httpd.
