Clean up folders after upgrading ipb3 to IPS4


Recommended Posts

My way to cleanup "Uploads" folder:

0. Make backup on your HDD! Download "Uploads" folder

1. Create new "storage method" in System - Files - Storage Settings - Configurations. You can create new Directory as example. I use Amazon S3 for it.

2. Change storage method to new for all stuff in "storage settings" (Attachments, ... , Forum Icons, ...)

3. Wait while all necessary files will be move to new destination

4. Delete all non-moved files 

5. Change storage method back again

What about database, maybe some old tables is present after upgrade but they is not so big. Don`t want "broke my head" delete or not ^_^ Let it live...
