    I am getting diskspace usage emails and it states:

    The filesystem “/var/tmp” mounted at “/var/tmp” reached “warn” status because you currently use 83.67% of its available blocks.

    Now when I look in this folder there is only some .flag files. Can they be deleted?

    I am working through a general clean up as well. As we have 6 months worth of back ups! That are not needed to be stored on there. :)

    Any pointers would be great, thanks in advance

    Hello,

    You'll need to access the system via SSH as the "root" user to troubleshoot the issue. This document is helpful when starting out with SSH:

    SSH Access - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.
