Just a situation I find myself in. I recently started trying to improve the
speed of performance of my mediawiki site. To do so I installed varnish,
and set up memcached to run on that server. debian Linux 8 with php7 from
backports. Now I got all of the update done and checked to see that the
server was running OK: the last step was to rebuild the caching files using
the command php rebuildFileCache.php. I've used this before with no
complications however this time it filled up my entire diskdrive 923GB and
I'm not sure what to do the clean up my mess. The entire system will boot
up but the drive is so bloated that I cant even log in in the xterminal
desktop. I do have full access as root on the regular terminal.
I would really appreciate any tips to handle this.
