    Seems like after I ran /scripts/securetmp yesterday it caused issues where the /tmp directory it not clearing out old sessions / files and just filling up all the way.

    WHM's Disk Usage Stats:

    Device Total Space Space Used Space Available Percentage Used Mounted On
    /dev/hda1 145M 38M 100M 28% /boot
    /tmp 243M 169M 62M 74% /var/tmp
    /dev/hdb1 230G 16G 203G 8% /extra
    /dev/hda2 228G 62G 155G 29% /
    /usr/tmpDSK 243M 169M 62M 74% /tmp


    It actually shot up to 94% but I manually cleared out some sess* files.

    How do I correct this yet keep the /tmp directory still secure? This is a hosting server.

    This script screwed everything up. It keeps filling up tmp and not deleting old sessions, causing errors on sites throughout the entire server.
