    cPanel is refusing to update because there's not enough disk space.

    /tmp is empty, and Tmp Watch is installed.

    MySQL TMP directory is in another location.

    tmpDSK is 2.1gb (the size I specified in securetmp), but there are only a few megs worth of files actually in /tmp

    Why is tmpDSK (in /usr) full, and how do I empty it so I can update cPanel?

    Re: /tmp emopty but /tmpDSK Full

    ??? No kidding. As you can see tmpDSK is in /usr and it is FULL.

    That's why I'm asking WHY tmpDSK is full, that's WHY I created this thread.... If it wasn't full then /USR would have enough room.... I've already done a lot to free up space...

    Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.
