We are not having/getting a storage space error. On our dev site, the /tmp folder Drupal uses is practically empty. On the live server, it has hundreds, maybe thousands of files such as "fileDd7skt".
When I try to sudo rm fileD* for instance, I get no error just normal behavior as if the command worked. But when I ls again, the files are still there.
I've cleaned caches both with Drush within Drupal trying both "Clear all caches" in the admin toolbar as well as Site Configuration/Performance.
Has anybody else had this issue? It's only on the live server, not the dev.
T file system setting in Drupal is using this directory and all is working, but I know it eventually will be an issue as we had it come up for the first time a couple of months ago and because the temp directory gets full (again because of the # of files, not that it's passed it's allocated space allotment) it will not dump an entire database when backing up/pushing to live.
