[SOLVED] Executing letsencrypt-auto inside a linux vserver results in Errno 28 (no space left on device) during pip upgrade phase


#1

I’d like to run the letsencrypt client inside a linux vserver guest. During the first run in the pip update phase I get a IOError: [Errno 28] No space left on device Error. Not sure if this has something to do with it running inside a vserver, because there is plenty of space. I’m not runnig lvm or such. Here’s the stacktrace:

$ ./letsencrypt-auto

Sounds like a full temp directory. Try setting your temp dir to some path that has enough space before running letsencrypt-auto.

export TMPDIR="/path/with/more/space"

(Untested. If this doesn’t work, try cleaning up your current temp directory.)

jap, that did the trick, thanks!
