introduction I have recently started using Virtualmin GPL. Backup Virutal Servers is failing becuase the Default Temporary files directory (/tmp/.webmin) is only 1GB capacity. This only happens when backing up websites with a total size of over 1GB
error message Backup failed : Failed to write to /tmp/.webmin/210577_1_backup.cgi/domain.com_web when closing : No space left on device
solution I can get around the problem by changing the Default Temporary files directory to /home/tmp which has plenty of space.
question Is it safe to change the Temporary files directory? How will it effect the performance of the server?
