I just received this email from my host provider (Web Hosting Hub):
Can someone please explain to me what is happening? Should I do something specific?Hello Henry,
System administration has determined that you have a script in your account that is "core dumping." The core dumps were removed but were located in your account at the following location:
Core dumps occur when a process is loaded into memory and terminates itself prematurely, causing the memory segment to be written to the disk as a file. You can find more information about coredumps here: http://www.webhostinghub.com/help/learn ... core-dumps
While we are not sure exactly what is causing this behavior, we were able to trace back the script to the following command/process:
The core dumps being caused by the above command is related to a scripting issue, or the process that generated it may have crashed during execution. If this is a recurring issue, we highly recommend reviewing the file that generates the core dump to prevent further issues.
Feel free to contact us with any further questions.
P.S.: I ran the test program provided by my host in the above link, and this is what I got:
