Separate sessions directory (not /tmp) WITHOUT directory listing, on file systems with large number of inodes

There are 2 problems with php sessions1. There should be a different directory (session.save_path) for sessions which would DISALLOW directory listing. PHP session ids is not a good idea to show to all users.

2. /tmp (or otherwise) file system needs to have a much larger inode table due to session files usually being small and plentiful. If inodes run out (which it does on busy servers), websites stop working properly.

It is indeed strange that the tmp is only 512mb large!!!

I was trying to do a repair table and the tmp run always full, it was not possible to repair.

With the /scripts/securetmp i finally found a way to change the /usr/tmpDSK file, I changed the my $tmpdsksize size to 2Gb

When I run the script it indeed changes my tmp , but the next reboot reverts my tmp to 512mb !!!


It should be custumisable in the tweaks menu
