Support » Plugin: Events Manager » Not deleting old session files

  • Resolved stalks


    I just inadvertently took down the entire server by using this plugin.

    The session files are being created in the temp folder, ie.


    With content such as

    However it never deletes these files. A new one is created for every visit. If I close the browser, and visit the site again, a new file is created.

    I had 400k+ session files in the temp folder, which increase INODE usage to 100%. No more files could be created on server = CRASH.

    How do I fix this?

  • Okay I hopefully have fixed this by adding
    session.gc_probability = 1
    to php.ini.

    It seemed Debian had set this to 0 by default which meant PHP was not garbage collecting.

    thanks for updating us.

    fyi, we don’t use sessions anymore since EM 5.3.3, unless you haven’t upgraded yet, they’d be old ones from before that weren’t deleted
