these are called Core dump files

and Wikipedia says “a core dump consists of the recorded state of the working memory of a computer program at a specific time, generally when the program has terminated abnormally (crashed).” Core dumps are often used to

diagnose or debug errors

in computer programs."

wordpres doesn't create these files but there is a problem on that site. Something is crashing like Apache etc hence the core dump.

Hopefully djbob or xaav can fix this from happening, but until then you can upload this coredump sweeper script to your site and give it a php extension:




Then add it as an include to one of your files. It will look for ANY files on your site with core in the name and delete them.
