    I am trying to get my DB back in working order. However, mysqlcheck keeps filling up my / partition, even though everything is on the /var parition which has ample space.

    How can I stop mysqlcheck from using / partition and use /var or other? It fills up that space in just a few seconds and its done.

    If I could figure out what it was writing to, i could put in a a link or something to a different partition, but can't find anything on where it is writing or how to change the partition.

    All "paths" in my.cnf point to /var

    Killing the mysql server free's up this space on the / partition. Starting mysqld doesn't use it, until mysqlcheck -r is issued.
