Hi All,

My server is hardened by using cPanel's securetmp script. I have installed Nginx using Nginx Admin plugin. My problem is every few days, Nginx fails to processes some phppages and states in its logs that no space is left in /tmp. However in such cases, "df -h" shows that a lot of disk space is left on the tmpDSK which is mounted under /tmp. So I think no inode is left on the device. So I would like to mount /tmp with some more inodes. As I know tmpDSK is mounted on boot so there should be a setting that can control number od inodes.

I look forward for your helpful answers.
TIA

You will have to setup the cron job to clean /tmp directory, Following cron will automatically cleanup your /tmp/nginx_client directory so that you will not get any issues with tmp inodes.

Code:
0 */1 * * * /usr/sbin/tmpwatch -am 1 /tmp/nginx_client

Hello :)

I suggest reviewing the /tmp partition to verify what's taking up the available inodes. It's possible that you need to setup a tmpwatch script as referenced in the previous post to automatically clean up older files.

Thank you.
