How to delete deleted by users posts?

Post by AlexandrBu »

Hello

Y have many deleted post by users - i see like "Display this post" and "Deleted post: Delete - Restore"

The problem is that deleted posts affects topics posts count - i get 404 on some pages because all posts are deleted but phpbb stil thinks there is a lot posts in this topic!

I can not delete them from moderators post - to much - my server freeezes

How can i mass delete deleted by users posts?

I think you are talking about posts deleted without the permanent deletion permission. IN other words, these posts remain in the database until they are permanently deleted by someone with the needed permission (can permanently delete posts).
That feature doesn't depend on the time of the day (at least that's what I gather you mean with early morning "hores".
With "modereatres web interface" do you mean the MCP (Moderator Control Panel)? And what are free VPS serese recurses?
BTW please put some more attention into spelling as "hores" is slang spelling for "whores" which isn't exactly the subject :shock:

AFAIR in the MCP multiple posts can be deleted in one movement.
What do you mean with a linux concole for bulk editing a phpBB component?
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

Pardon me

My case i need to delete 50000-100000 post
i could hide it by marking it as deleted by user this way viewtopic.php?f=661&t=2569866

Now its a realy big problem to realy delete it manualy from Moderators Panel.

It must be some way to do it with phpbbcli.php or another MYSQL command?
