Extremely large file php-cgi.core in Providence main directory

[Providence 1.7.11]

Is it normal that there is a file named php-cgi.core in the Providence main directory that is over 700 MB (!) in size? In all our CA installations there is such a file, each with a similar size. However, our CA databases are still small, none has more than 100 records.


  • That's a core dump file created by the operating system due to PHP crashing for whatever reason. It's an image of the process memory and may be useful in determining the cause of the crash. It's not created by CA.
