    I wanted to increase the size of /tmp dir, so killed mysql, httpd processes. Then

    Code:
    umount /tmp
    replaced the size value in /scripts/securetmp
    Code:
    rm /usr/tmpDSK
    and finally launched
    Code:
    /scripts/securetmp
    and got this output:

    Code:
    Would you like to secure /tmp & /var/tmp at boot time? (y/n) y
    Would you like to secure /tmp & /var/tmp now? (y/n) y
    Use of uninitialized value in numeric eq (==) at /scripts/cpservice line 48.
    Use of uninitialized value in print at /scripts/cpservice line 49.
    Use of uninitialized value in exit at /scripts/cpservice line 55.
    Securing /tmp & /var/tmp
    Setting up /tmp... mount: you must specify the filesystem type
    Done
    You may notice securetmp failed to mount tmp dir
    Code:
    Setting up /tmp... mount: you must specify the filesystem type
    What filesystem type I have to specify? How to mount it manually?

    I use CentOS 5, latest WHM 11.28.83. In case you need, here is the copy of my fstab:
    Code:
    LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults,usrquota        1 1
    LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
    tmpfs                   /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
    devpts                  /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
    sysfs                   /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
    proc                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
    LABEL=SWAP-sda2         swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
    #/usr/tmpDSK             /tmp                    ext3    defaults,noauto        0 0
    #/dev/tmpMnt            /tmp                    ext2    loop,noexec,nosuid,rw   0 0
    /usr/tmpDSK             /tmp                    ext3    defaults,noauto        0 0
    /tmp             /var/tmp                    ext3    defaults,bind,noauto        0 0

    Hello,

    Please try the following steps:

    1. Uninstall securetmp

    Code:
    /scripts/securetmp --uninstall
    2. Remove /tmp and /var/tmp from /etc/fstab

    Code:
    cp /etc/fstab /root/fstab.bak110224
    vi /etc/fstab
    Remove the line for /tmp in the file:

    Code:
    /tmp             /var/tmp                    ext3    defaults,bind,noauto        0 0
    Save the file :)wq)

    3. Move /usr/tmpDSK if it exists to /usr/tmpDSK.bak110224

    Code:
    mv /usr/tmpDSK /usr/tmpDSK.bak110224
    4. Re-run /scripts/securetmp

    Code:
    /scripts/securetmp
    If the above does not work, please provide the size you are trying to use to increase /tmp to for the securetmp script. It might be that you are exceeding an allowed value for the size of the partition.

    Thanks.
