change location of /tmp/.webmin

is it possiable to change / redefine where virtualmin places its temp files?

The partition I have /tmp on isn’t big enough to store the virtualmin backup tmp files before they get SSH’ed to another server hence a backup cannot occur.

I have tried to make a symbolic link that makes .webmin point to a partition that has more free space but each time the script gets run the link gets changed back to default.

Any help or suggestions very welcomed
