ROOT[~]# killall tailwatchd
ROOT[~]# service httpd stop
ROOT[~]# service mysql stop
Check to make sure that nothing else is using /tmp and kill any processes that is using it
ROOT[~]# lsof | grep /tmp
ROOT[~]# umount /tmp
At this point you're going to want to modify the /scripts/securetmp file using nano.
