Purge Log Files

Post by Ideas Bot » Wed May 30, 2018 7:50 am

The title says it all.

I know that there are a couple of extension that will do this but it has baffled me why this was never included in the core going back to phpBB 3.0

You mean like the "Delete All" button at the bottom of each Log in the ACP?

No because that will delete all entries but purging will roll the entries off the end and do it automatically via a cron job.

I am not sure what you are asking for. You can delete whatever you want from those logs...

I know you can do it manually but it can be laborious.

All I want is to keep, say, 30 days of entries in the log and anything older to roll off each day. The 30 days being a user configurable option.

You mean auto-purging after a set amount of days?

That would be nice to have. Setting it so logged events are removed once a week, once a month, etc.

Yeah, I would like that.

I went to your board and looked for an hour or so, but did not see the women without underwear.
