Hello to my favorite list of people. =] and without any further ado..
I recently reinstalled FreeBSD and i am afraid i didnt think to take the fact that i wanted to mirror freebsd isos and the ports collection into consideration. I also forgot that i had a personal library of a few gigs of ebooks. (i started a bad habit years ago of keeping my www root in /var. I have yet to kick that habit because all my configs and web scripts point to /var/www/html. heh. In short, i made var quite tiny and bit myself in the butt.. =[ [labs] /# df -m /var Filesystem 1M-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on /dev/ad0s1d 3671 2840 538 84% /var [labs] /# awww sh*t. I moved the ftp directory previously in /var to /usr/ and i edited master.passwd to point ftp to the right dir and did a pwd_mkdb -p /etc/master.passwd.. Ftp seems to be working just fine. My question is, is there some reprocussions of this that i should be weary of? Security issues? I have two 120 gig maxtor drives that i can move ftp too, but /usr isnt all that full cause i made it huge because i mirror the freebsd srces too. and i will never use all that space so it makes more sense to keep it in /usr if i can. keep in mind also this is anonymous ftp we are talking about. thanks. -- Independent WWW/FreeBSD/Linux/Unix consultant, email me for more info.
