tmp partition full ( MySQL spool files)

Jun 25, 2013 by roller1
Hi there
I have been getting warnings lately saying that my ‘/tmp’ partition is full, or nearly full. I found an amount of MYI and MYD files.
  I think moving these spool files to a different directory will solve the issue. But I have no idea how to do that. Can anyone please help

If the root partition doesn’t have enough space, then you can utilize the /home partition
