You have an article where you explain how to move the sessions to tmpfs so I thought I’d ask you for help even though I haven’t moved them.
my sessions are still stored in here and apparently owned by root:
ls -al /var/lib/php5/ total 5040 drwx-wx-wt 2 root root 5144576 Jun 3 13:20 . drwxr-xr-x 76 root root 4096 May 21 22:42 .. -rw------- 1 root root 0 Jun 3 13:20 sess_26qvcar4iiars91a26050s9kv2
The above was generated after I logged into a webmail on my server but it was created with root as owner/group - does this seem right to you? Shouldn’t it be the user/group php5-fpm runs as?
How can I check whether my cron job that is supposed to clean my sessions runs correctly? I found it inside /etc/cron.d/php5
