I recently had an issue with a website that was bogging down and throwing WP-errors. I was able to locate the source of my problem down to a folder in my wp-Content/uploads folder called Dynamic_Avia. This folder had over 10000 avia-footer….. js and css files that had been generated, I disabled the merging functions in the Template performance section and was finally able to clear the files in that folder, freeing over 50GB of server drive space!
The consequence, was that my Wordfence site scanner couldn’t run, leaving me vulnerable.
After disabling the merged CSS and JS and cleaning the dyamic_avia folder out, I was able to scan the site successfully.
This can’t be normal.
Any ideas as to why so many temporary files are being continually generated? And why they hang around taking up disk space when they serve no purpose?
We’ve had other customers report the same thing, but we haven’t been able to pinpoint the exact problem yet unfortunately. As for now, please deactivate file compression and select to delete the old CSS and JS files under Enfold->Performance. If you need to compress and/or minify resources then please try to use a plugin until we have managed to solve the problem.
I have a website with the exact same problem.
Everything is updated. What now?
