Move web backups to /opt/fog
I just dealt with a full root partition due to the web folder backups that go into
/homeThey were using about 16GB of my 20GB
I’m requesting that these backups instead go into
/opt/fogsomewhere and I can then update documentation to make a partition for /opt.
@Tom-Elliott while I don’t have a dog in this race, I agree with Wayne that fog should keep all of its bits in its one location. /opt/fog/… is a logical choice. Typically with rhel based distros /home is placed on its own partition so technically its OK to use that since filling up the /home partition won’t bring down the system. But unfortunately not all linux distros place the /home in its own partition. If its an option in the installer to change it to another location, set the default to /opt/fog/backup and still allow the user to change the location if they want to. I also understand that unless installers take the extra step to move /opt to its own disk/partition they will not be any better off than just placing it on the root partition today.
But that is just my opinion on the topic.
@Wayne-Workman /home is safe.
@Tom-Elliott But why have the default values putting things in such spread out locations? The defaults should be safe(er).
@Wayne-Workman I refuse to do this.
Because you can set your own backup paths right in the installer.
@Wayne-Workman Tom seen this on my server also.
The backups are for some reason taking 1.4GB each now.
