the server is filling up in .cagefs/tmp/



  • Hi, we are having an issue with the server filling up. We offloaded the images so this wouldn't happen.
    the folder on cpanel filling up is .cagefs/tmp/byronsurfers/wp-content/uploads.
    imgix.com is the file processor

  • Media Cloud only writes to the /tmp directory in rare circumstances and it doesn't write to a subdirectory in tmp that would mimic your wordpress content directory structure.

    Now it could be the case that a plugin is using WordPress's WP_Image_Editor class to maybe generate a new image size or something. This is the only time that Media Cloud would write to /tmp is to download a file that isn't on the server. Unfortunately, it's impossible to clean that up because Media Cloud doesn't know whats being done with the temp file after it's been downloaded.

    The best thing you can do is run a cronjob that clears your tmp directory once a day.

    BTW, Media Cloud does watermarking if you are using Imgix: https://youtu.be/blFUKzOsbXs

    Also, in Media Cloud 3.0 you will be warned about using Photo Gallery. It's a horrible plugin. We recommend Smart Slider, Meta Slider, Master Slider and NextGen Galleries.

    3.0 should be out very soon.



  • Hi I really appreciate the support
    Any chance you could check out the site, so slow. over 1 minute to load. only when the media cloud is active. The original images are huge but I was hoping that wouldn't be an issue as I thought the imgix optimized and served scaled images.



  • Sure, email me at [email protected]
