Can I choose the location of the temporary directories?
In the folder /wp-content/uploads of your WordPress installation, BackWPup creates temporary directories for files, which are only needed while a job is running. You can choose another folder for the temporary directories.
For this, you need write access to your wp-config.php, which can generally be found in the root directory of your WordPress installation.
- Open the wp-config.php file and search for the line
if ( !defined('ABSPATH') ).
- Add this line before the one of step 1:
define( 'WP_TEMP_DIR', '/absolute/path/to/wp/your/temp-dir' );
/absolute/path/to/wp/with the absolute path of your WordPress installation and
your/temp-dirwith the path to your new temp folder.
- Save the file.
