/tmp empty but /tmpDSK Full

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?

??? 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.
