Changing rstudio temp log location


#1

Hello,

Our rstudio log files are by default written below. How can we change it to some other directory?

Thanks.

It's not clear to me which RStudio product you are using. At first I thought this is probably RStudio Server Pro, but the fact you're using PostGres indicates that perhaps you are talking about RStudio Connect.
