Upload to CephFS cached in / (root)

Whenever I upload a file to cephfs via the web client the file gets written to the root partition instead of /mnt/pve/cephfs
For big files this fills up the root partition which kills ceph-mon.
How can I get the web client to upload directly to cephfs?

That's not possible. There are some other threads here, if you use the search.
You can login via SSH on the server an change in this directory, you can copy the file with SCP or download it with wget.
With the current implementation of the browser upload, the file is written to a temporary location first, before being moved to the target storage.
