Hello :)

I have since two months ago an strange log which is called like some of my tables. This logs are correlative, and looks like:

pausecampaigns.1005
pausecampaigns.1006
pausecampaigns.1007
pausecampaigns.1008
pausecampaigns.... }
All files are empty. So I take conclution about maybe is something type of log about MySQL DB. But I don't know. Some remote idea?

Thanks :)

Hello :)

Do you have a particular script installed on this account that could result in those files?

Thank you.

Not specially something like an PHP which write that, but yes, I have scripts in files called like that or tables called like that too. But that files (php) don't write more far than in DB, in other words: don't write files (txt, xml, etc) only work with DB.

Thanks :)

You may want to consult with the developer or the support of the script in question, as I don't see how cPanel or Apache would create those files. Try searching through the script code for that term to see if there is any function that creates those files.

Thank you.

I have researched about and is the cron which saves data droped, this start at the last update of WHM, per example, one of my cron is:

wget 'externalurl/cron/pausecampaigns' > /dev/null;
How can I solve it?
Thanks!

You could remove that cron job to prevent it from happening, or consult with the developer or the support of the script in question to see why it's happening.

Thank you.
