Libre Office creates excessive tmp files

Directory /opt/zimbra/data/tmp/libreoffice fills up, which ends up causing disk space issues.


Zimbra uses Liberoffice for the high fidelity document preview, and this issue is caused by the Libreoffice packages. The /opt/zimbra/data/tmp/libreoffice contains many sub-directories and each of them has large temp files which end up taking a lot of space.

For an immediate fix, we can safely delete/move these tmp files. After that, re-install the libreoffice packages from the server and then restart the zimbra services resolve this issue.

First remove the packages (Run the following as root):

yum remove libreoffice 
yum remove libreoffice-headless 

Then re-install them:

yum install libreoffice 
yum install libreoffice-headless 

And finally restart the services:

su - zimbra 
zmcontrol restart
