    Any kind of work around (manual path change) available?

    Waqas is going to be looking at the Homebrew script, and hopefully fix this issue. In the meantime, yes, you can change the data path via the 'data_path' option in the config. I don't use OS X, I'm not sure what the correct path is... as long as it exists and is owned by Prosody, you can use anything.
