I tried to ssh into a site that I have and was greeted with an error
-bash: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable
After sending a ticket to my host, I get a response saying the
Someone is exploiting the code on yoru site to run local things
in /tmp, not
sure how they’re exploiting it, but they sit in the background,
and thus you
get the fork warning.
Being fairly new to RoR, I went through everything I could think of…
checking to make sure permissions are correct, looking through log
files, etc, and came up with nothing. I tried getting more info from
the host, to find out what was running and if there was any more
information I could get to try and stop it and this is what he says
Not sure what they're running, whatever it is deletes the source
started. It hides itself as exim queue runners.
Has anyone had problems like this? I have no idea what I can do to
track this down or if it’s something even caused by my rails site in
the first place. It’s running v1.1.6 on CentOS 3.8 if any of that
helps. Through my searching I found this article:
but have no idea if that even has anything to do with the problems
that I am having now.
