    Question Remote webserver complaining about /tmp/


    Okay, so the server on which my website is hosted has a big problem: its temp folder keeps getting full up, and once it's bigger than about 7 MB (wtf?), it won't allow anyone to upload files via HTTP upload, which is a real pain. I contacted my host about this, who cleared the temp folder for me, but it's happened several times recently, so I wrote a small PHP script to delete all files from /tmp/ that it has permission to. Unfortunately, regardless of that the folder is still too big. Does anyone know a way to fix this problem given my obviously limited permissions over the server?

    Sounds like a quota issue. I would try to work more with your host's support team to get this resolved.

    Okay then. Since I know my host over MSN, that'll just be a matter of patience
