  • [Bug / Issue] Attachments in filesystems are not deleted by Cleanup2

    Hello, I'm back to talk about my problem, after opening a ticket to the support, no one was able to find the problem, even with access to the dedicated server.
    I paid a system administrator and a php programmer, and they can not find the problem.
    The question I was asked, and that I turn to you, is: where in the cleanup2.php is the function of deleting files from the filesystem? Where can I direct them to find the error?

    Thank you.

    cleanup2.php deletes the attachment records from the database. Line 37 - // Unused filedata is removed after 12 hours.

    It is more than 2/3rds of the actual code in the file. There is no code in this file to delete attachments from the disk. Seems like a bug. I guess no one else actually cares if the file gets deleted or not.

    I've created a bug report - https://tracker.vbulletin.com/vbulle...sues/VBV-18892

      I imagine that not everyone has 4 million attachments on their forum.
      And I realized it only because I deleted over 200 thousand threads after going to vb5.

      thanks

        I've asked for an offline script for the command line that can do this.

          Please backup your attachment directory and use the attached file to delete those without a database record. There is a .md file with the instructions in the zip file.

          How to use this file
          1. Place this file in your /core directory.
          2. Run from the command line: php cleanfiledata.phar --source=source\dir --target=targetdir
          3. Replace your source directory with the target directory
