bb-config.php in web directory appears corrupt (and HUGE)

  • Dan LaSota


    I was tracking down a disk full error on my server and I ran across the file bb-config.php
    Here is a partial directory listing of my WordPress networked multisite install:

    [root@community public_html]# ls -l
    total 16162640
    -rwxrwxr-x  1 apache   apache 16550170624 Oct  7 17:03 bb-config.php
    -rw-rw-r--  1 apache   apache        5686 Mar  2  2015 favicon.ico
    drwxrwxr-x  5 apache   apache        4096 Aug  6  2010 feed2js
    drwxrwxr-x  2 apache   apache          34 Jul 13  2012 files
    -rwxrwxr-x  1 apache   apache        9853 Nov 10  2011 glob_deny.rules
    drwxrwxr-x  3 apache   apache          46 May  6 10:18 http:
    -rw-r--r--  1 apache   apache         418 Oct 29  2013 index.php

    The top bit of bb-config.php looks to be php code. The bottom bits, revealed with the tail command, are binary.

    A config file, or functions file, can’t be 16GB big.

    What is normally stored in this file?
    There are a few sites which are using the bbPress system, I don’t want to lose actual student data, but my disk is filling up/full.
