find . -name "*temp.cgi*" -exec rm '{}' \;

Also, what does your title have to do with your question?

I have tried that but cannot remove the file. The error message below.

[root@localhost]# find . -name "*temp.cgi*" -exec rm '{}' \;
rm: cannot remove `./temp.cgi': Stale NFS file handle


I am sorry about the title. I don't know what to name it so I just put the error message. Should it be "How to delete Stale NFS file handle file"?

No, your body should have related to your topic. You didn't previously tell us that you got "Stale NFS file handle" when trying to remove the file, so it seemed to be a non sequitur.

Anyway, the easiest way is probably to reboot.

reboot the machine and the problem is still there.

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# ls -l temp.cgi
ls: cannot access temp.cgi: Stale NFS file handle

[root@localhost ~]# rm -rf temp.cgi
rm: cannot remove `temp.cgi': Stale NFS file handle

Ok, please post the output of
df -h
mount
ls -ld /tmp
grep tmp /etc/fstab

and any recent errors in /var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages. Please also tell us what Linux version you are running.
