Is it possible/safe to move the default Meteor installation folder?


#1

I’d like to move it to a mounted drive where we have more HDD space. Does anyone know if this is possible?


#2

Try symbolic link. I just gave it a try and it seems to work fine.


#3

Kk, will do, thank you for the suggestion.


#4

It would be nice if there was a way to specify where to install via the installation script. Allow Meteor to manage it’s own directories that way.

You can do this easily when starting with dev-bundler. Just follow guide on github (slow start for developers)

cd /your/wished/path
git clone https://github.com/meteor/meteor.git
cd meteor
git checkout release/METEOR@1.1.0.2
scripts/generate-dev-bundle.sh
./meteor --version

for easy access, you may create some link

ln -s /your/wished/path/meteor/meteor /usr/local/bin/meteor

Be careful if you want to run meteor with different users. There might be some conflicts with access rights. If interested in details have a look at: https://github.com/4commerce-technologies-AG/meteor/issues/16
