    Hi all.

    I have some users with huge tmp files (between 500MB and 2GB): /home/$USER/.cagefs/tmp/phpXXXXXX

    I have other servers with the same issue. I do not know if this is the root of the issue but users bith bigger "phpXXXXXX" files are using Wordpress+plugins with php7.

    Any Ideas?

    Code:
    [root@server ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release

    most probably these are cache files generated by the wordpress cache plugins , once the cache is cleared the files should be removed.

    I correlated some dates from a strace and pointed to this lines in apache error_log:

    Any ideas?




    Not the same issue, but thanks anyway.

    I already think in cache problems, but at the time I got nothing clear. Thanks.

    Hello,

    CloudLinux documents the CageFS tmp directory, including steps to manually clean up temporary files, at:

    CloudLinux Documentation

    Could you let us know if that helps to clear these files?

    Thank you.

    I traced the issue down to the wordfence plugin. But I do not know why it is creating such big tmp files. With high php max_execution_time and high lsapi lsapi_backend_max_process_time this tmp files appears to grow infinitely.

    You may also want to reach out to CloudLinux directly for their feedback on this topic since the issue relates to CageFS:
