Temporary files filling up server space (3 posts)

    I've been using this plugin on a site of mine for a while, but I've recently found out that I'm running short on server space. Upon inspection, I found out that the folder where the a2p.tmp.* files are stored (to be served up to the visitor for download) has tens of thousands of files & is taking up multiple GBs of space.

    Since a2p.cache.* files are utilized for people downloading the same file, I'm guessing all of these tmp files have been accumulating over time & haven't been getting purged after they've been served up for download (since there would be no reason to keep them, right?).

    Any word on whether or not article2pdf can be set up so that the temporary files are deleted after they're downloaded (or purged on a regular basis)? Or is this just a bug that I've encountered?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    I'm pretty sure the plugin should do this automatically... Sounds like maybe your permissions are off?

    See the FAQ: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/article2pdf/faq/

    Important: Choose correct paths for the template, cache and temp directory! The directorys MUST be writeable by the webserver, so set the correct owner and directory permissions to the dirs.

    It's able to write the cache & temp files perfectly fine, the paths seem to be correct, and the permissions appear to be normal. It's just that the files unfortunately start to accumulate over time, and I have yet to figure this out :-/
