  • What are these files?

    ELF 32-bit LSB core file Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), SVR4-style, from ‘php’

    I have tons of these “core” files filing up my blog space, and I can’t figure out what they are. They are all in my main blog file sitting with the wp files. They all start out core. with numbers attached like core.1024. When I go to view file type it says:
    ELF 32-bit LSB core file Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), SVR4-style, from ‘php’
    but I can’t read it. It’s just a bunch of jumbled letters, symbols, etc. Help please?

    There were over 1000 of them. No wonder my host was complaining about the amount of space I was using. Sheeeesh!

    thats not good, and indicates there are issues on that box. Like I said, make sure to email the support peeps and let them know. They may indeed want to see one the next time it happens.

    That’s exactly what they just said to me in their e-mail. They are scratching their heads a bit right now as well.

    Tell them to reinstall Zend Optimizer – that usually caused them to show if it’s corrupted, which one of the versions recently was..

    if it’s a cpanel box, tell them to ssh in and run the following:
    [code]/scripts/installzendopt[/code]
