How can I stop Eaccelerator from filling up /tmp?

If you simply want to clean out the /tmp/eaccerlator folder, the following command does the trick on CentOS and RedHat systems.

tmpwatch --mtime --all 336 /tmp/eaccelerator


To permanently fix the issue:


Login to your server as root :

# nano /usr/lib/php.ini

Find (You can use ctrl+w):

eaccelerator.cache_dir=”/tmp/eaccelerator

and change it from /tmp/eaccelerator to /var/cache/eaccelerator and save the file.

# mkdir /var/cache/eaccelerator

#service httpd stop

#rm -rf /tmp/eaccelerator

#service httpd start
