Error message 'Invalid cross-device link' in site-admin web-interface


System has hard cross-device links. For example, /usr/tmp linked to /var/tmp and /var mounted to a separate partition.


The main idea of fixing the problem with invalid cross-device link is to create non cross device .tmp directory for

each of your cross device links and put info about this .tmp directory to /etc/virtualhosting/tmpdirs file.



 /usr/tmp linked to /var/tmp and /var mounted to a separate partition.


To fix the problem:

1. Create /usr/.tmp directory

   mkdir -p /usr/.tmp

2. Add the following entry to the /etc/virtualhosting/tmpdirs:


3. Restart epld

  service restart epld


  /etc/init.d/epld restart
