How to change data directory location and increase storage space

The data directory is the location where Buddy Enterprise stores repositories, databases and workspace data. By default it's located in ~/.buddy/app. If your disk is running out of space, you can move the contents of the directory to another location by changing the directory from the CLI:

  1. Log in to the machine where Buddy GO is installed.
  2. If the app is running, halt it using

    buddy stop
    
  3. Go to configuration settings by entering

    buddy configure
    
  4. Go to Application data path.
  5. Type U and enter the new absolute data path.
  6. Restart the application to apply changes.

Once applied, Buddy will automatically move the /app folder to the new location.
