Default installation of discourse and redis_data


I am wondering if during the installation we can change the default path for redis_data which normall is /var/discourse/shared/standalone/redis_data/?

Can it be passible to change the ‘redis_data’ path after installation?


Yes, you could remap it by editing the volumes section of your app.yml and adding a stanza like

  - volume:
      host: /my/big/mistake
      guest: /shared/redis_data

But it’s almost certain that no good can come of it. It uses very little disk space and mostly doesn’t use it. The likelihood that you’ll break something and that no one in the world will be of any help is pretty high.
