    i'm looking at WHM>System Health and the disk space for /tmp is now at 111 MB free and has been continuously decreasing. I'm afraid what will happen once it runs out of space, the other partition that websites, etc are on has 9 GB free though. is there something i need to do or does cPanel take care of this internally?

    no files at /var/lib/mysql/fourier.err or /var/lib/mysql/fourier.dreamphysix.com.err
    ls /var/lib/mysql/ | grep err returns nothing

    Hmm that's strange. You should see these two files there:
    fourier.dreamphysix.com.err
    fourier.dreamphysix.com.pid

    Could you please post the output of your /etc/my.cnf file?

    Code:
    cat /etc/my.cnf
    Next, can you post the return for this:

    Code:
    ps aux | grep mysql
    I believe you've likely output the error log elsewhere via /etc/my.cnf and that's why you aren't seeing it there. Otherwise, you've disabled the error log.

    After following the link provided above, I checked my system health and found that the amount of free space on /tmp had increased, so it is apparent that temporary files have been removed.

    Your errors are being logged to --log-error=/var/log/mysqld.log so /var/log/mysqld.log file rather than the typical location.
