    so, i'm running auto social poster on half of my blogs.

    today i go to run an upgrade on one of my wp blogs and i get an error: can't upgrade, check the log.

    I check the log and to my surprise, 'out of disk space'

    WTF???? i've allocated 100mg on this domain and the only thing i've got on the domain is wp and a few plugins....

    so i start doing some hunting to see what the f* could be causing this error...

    come to find out that auto social poster is taking about > 75 Megs < of disk space. The folder is the tmp folder....1998 f*ing temp files...i'm having a hell of a time deleting these files, i had a hell of a time deleting the plug in cuz of this g*d damn tmp folder was so f*ing big....

    so, i go to check my other sites that have asp running:

    domain 1 - 75 Megs
    domain 2 - 78 Megs
    domain 3 - 88 Megs
    See the pattern???

    All domains that have been running asp have exceeded their disk space...:(

    keep in mind, for each auto blog i've got only 100 mg - 150 mg allocated....so if i had a bigger space, my guess is that asp would have ballooned even more.

    quite a head ache to fix I have about 25 blogs running this stupid plug in...

    I agree. USELESS plugin I still haven't found a GOOD alternative. However use OnlyWire WP plugin. This will help with CPU load aswell.

    You are deleting it via FTP right ? That's y its taking hell load of time to delete . if you are under Cpanel , go to filemanager and MASS SELECT ALL files and click delete ! It's gonna faster :cool:

    there is a function called "mm_send_report" in the file mm_post.php

    locate and delete these lines:

    Code:
        $f = @fopen ($report_dir.$time.'.html', 'w');
        if ($f)
        {
          $r = @fwrite ($f, ("<pre>".$body."</pre>"));
          @fclose ($f);
        }
    
    and it will not write those files anymore :biggthump
