I have had a surprisingly difficult time trying to move the datacache from its currently location on my SSD at ~/.ipfs to a large spinning media disk. I haven’t been able to find any clear documentation on how to do this… I’m assuming that I can just edit the config file. But when I execute “ipfs config edit”, I get ENV variable $EDITOR not set`. So
- Can I install ipfs in a way that sets up the cache where I want it the first time?
- How do I move a cache after it is installed?
- How do I fix the ENV variable $EDITOR not set` problem so that ipfs config edit works.
I’m running on go-ipfs on Ubuntu 16.04
