    /dev/is full but I am not sure what to do.
    I looked in /tmp and there are a ton of Empty files that I can't figure out how to get rid of. "rm" will not remove them. Some look like:
    -rw------- 1 popuser popuser 0 Sep 20 05:05 Zv1l2v
    and others look like
    -rw------- 1 apache apache 0 Sep 20 10:34 sess_d6283dc94d4a8ded505369bf6727d7aa
    Also I do not know what else I can remove (or where to look) in /dev/sda1 to help lower the amount of space used

    Please help

    Login as the root user. 0 byte files will not be your issue unless there is a million of them, likely they are a culprit of your disk being full. Also use "du -kx --max-depth=3 <filesystem> |sort -n -r |head -20" to identify the top 20 large directories, start there. Identify the filesystem first, then run the du command and identify what the problem is. This should be pretty straight forward for a UNIX admin, if you delete stuff and you don't know what's going on then it can get ugly very fast -- so be careful.
