Have you asked your web hosting provider for assistance? That's the first place I'd start.

install tmpwatch

^ | yum install tmpwatch -y Then set it up to run every day via cron when you'd like it to run. Be sure to make it only delete tmp files older than say...12 hours or so. That way it doesn't delete tmp files that are in use.

A maxed out /tmp is not normal. Tmpwatch will "fix" the problem by automatically deleting files in your /tmp, but it would be good to understand what exactly is building up in your /tmp. You can use the command: du -h --max-depth=1 to track down which folders contain the bulk of the data in your /tmp.

There is no /var/tmp mountpoint, so that first alert (saying /var/tmp is 86.79% full) is bogus. The root partition (/) is 86.79% full. The problem might be temp files in /var/tmp or /tmp, or it could be log files in /var/log, or it could be files anywhere else (except /boot and /home). du -h --max-depth=1 will show what's going on (as Brian has said).

Make sure to check also that you do not have bad script/site or no suspicious activity there :-)

How to setup cron job? Is there anyway to run that job now and then in every 3 day.

Can we check it?

Posted by kevincheri, 09-16-2016, 06:08 AM
Have you checked with your host? (should be the easiest of all) Here is the cron job that needed configured, 0 */1 * * * /usr/sbin/tmpwatch -am 1 /tmp/nginx_client (make sure you install the package first)

Check the bigger files du -Sh | sort -rh | head -10 and if you do not need the file please delete, my assuming that the logs
