I’ve searched around and have found several different way people handle install chia in a different location the /home or /root. Looking for some insight.
I understand what a symlink is, but never been successful with placing them.
Anyone else with a different solution?
If youre just talking about the database?
Then just move it wherever you want and alter .yaml to point to its new location.
Still don’t understand why people bother to set symlinks for this.
You can just change the path to the database in the config file.
move db file to new location.
edit config.yaml, change the db path to the new location
Ya, I saw that. Its an option. Going into a config file an manually editing the location just does not feel as “Official”.
For testing, I did successfully do a symlink and it did work. I don’t know if that is how I want to keep it. I may try this path option also and see how well it works.
I know there is a plan to make it so you can choose the location on installation. But there’s a lot of things on those lists so might take a while to make it to the top
If you want to feel it being “Official” Then just get a larger Hard-Disk around 500gb and install Chia on the C: If your running Windows 10. And keep it simple. If running Linux you still can get a larger drive etc. Just a little more work.
