Solved: Phorum Templates creating files in /tmp
May 26, 2017 06:19AM
Hey guys... Long time no chat!

Is this normal operation? Phorum is creating a bunch of files in /tmp named after each template I'm using. Then my web host is pointing these out as "suspicious files."

Are they normal? Are they suspicious?

These are normal files.
I use the .cache directory for temp files, so I can see what is happening. You may not be able to view a.tmp directory controlled by your host.

In the Admin there is an option to clear the cache files. There is an option to clear the cache of un-expired files, use this after success without checking the box.
If you have a lot of cache files it may time out, run it again, or delete from your web site " Control Panel".

Great. Now I just have to figure out how to get my webhost to ignore them.
