I'm getting email errors from a cron, on Ubuntu, that lives at:
I didn't install that cron, so I'm guessing it is installed with PHP. Its contents are as follows:
# /etc/cron.d/php5: crontab fragment for php5 # This purges session files older than X, where X is defined in seconds # as the largest value of session.gc_maxlifetime from all your php.ini # files, or 24 minutes if not defined. See /usr/lib/php5/maxlifetime # Look for and purge old sessions every 30 minutes 09,39 * * * * root [ -x /usr/lib/php5/maxlifetime ] && [ -d /var/lib/php5 ] && find /var/lib/php5/ -depth -mindepth 1 -maxdepth 1 -type f -cmin +\ $(/usr/lib/php5/maxlifetime) -delete
It seems to be the cron that kills old sessions.
It is however, sending me this email error:
To: root Subject: Cron <root@mailserver> [ -x /usr/lib/php5/maxlifetime ] && [ -d /var/lib/php5 ] && find /var/lib/php5/ -depth -mindepth 1 -maxdepth 1 -type f -cmin +$(/usr/lib/php5/maxlifetime) -delete (failed) Message: PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 262144 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 523800 bytes) in Unknown on line 0 find: invalid argument `-delete' to `-cmin'
Does anyone know how to go about remedying this?
EDIT: I know that 262144 bytes is not very much, so perhaps I should just bump up the memory limit? I figure that is a workaround, but I was just curious as to why these errors suddenly started popping up. There are never actually any
$_SESSIONs created on this server, it's only used to send email.
