  • Regular issues

    I 'm on cloud hosting and keep getting regular issues.

    Firstly I keep getting emails saying:

    Drive Critical: /dev/loop0 (/var/tmp) is 100% full

    And then mysql keeps failing which I'm not able to resolve myself by restarting using WHM, so I need to get support to do it for me.

    Just wondering what would be causing these issues and what can be done to solve them.

    Yesterday I was told by a support agent it was lack of CPU, so I paid extra to upgrade the CPU, but I'm still having the issues today.

    Dear Phillip

    I have checked partition schema of your vps and I noticed that /tmp of the server was having only 512 MB disk space. The session files of your sites were filling up the entire /tmp and due to which you were getting email alerts about the disk space

    To solve this problem permanently disk space of /tmp has been increased from 512M to 1024M. Please check the df -h output.

    [email protected] [~]# df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    24G 12G 11G 54% /
    /dev/sda1 99M 19M 76M 20% /boot
    tmpfs 256M 0 256M 0% /dev/shm
    /usr/tmpDSK 1008M 34M 924M 4% /tmp
    I hope you will not receive any email alerts further

          Hello Phillip Darvill,

          You are facing the problem because the permission of /tmp was not set properly.
          We have corrected the permissions for /tmp.

          Feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
          Best Regards,
