[R] help on Rprofile.site

Hi All,

we are running issues with RStudio like crash and packages not found.

Root Cause:
Sharing a home directory between two servers( we installed RStudio on two
servers and both are sharing same home directory).

Our Solution:
Create separate home directories on both RStudio servers and ensure that
both are not sharing same profile files like .rstudio/Rhistory
Current Home directories location: /home/user/
Proposed Home directory: /home/user/Ser1 & /home/user/Ser17 for both servers

In-order to achieve this I'm trying to set new home directory on both
servers to store .rstudio files separately.

[abc at xyz etc]$ pwd
[abc at xyz etc]$ cat Rprofile.site
.First <- function() cat("n Welcome to R!nn")
# get the System USER variable and set it to the R variable u
u <- Sys.getenv("USER")
# use file.path() to set the file path using the USER variable
u.path <- file.path("/home", u, "Ser17")
# change the working directory to the set file path
.Last <- function() cat("n Goodbye!nn")

Here I don't want to change the Working directory and looking to change
only home directory to store profile files which are used while starting R.

Could you please suggest me on this?
