Delete content task runs only once a day


Recommended Posts

Hello,

in the last couple of days we deleted a lot of old and hidden posts/topics. The list of deleted content in modcp is 200 pages long. 😉

We set the permanent deletion period to 1 day.

Due to the fact that the "delete content" task runs only once a day and everytime it deletes only approximately 1 page of deleted posts it would theoretically need 200 days to delete all 200 pages. 😉

Is it possible to run the deletion task more often a day automatically? (I know that I can start it manually as often as I want)

Another solution would be to use modcp to permanently delete the content, but this would also take a very long time, since only a few pages can be marked for deletion (due to a possible timeout).

Thanks in advance for your help.

Ah, it will probably run until timeout on your mysql instance, so increasing the length of time a query can be run for would likely resolve that issue, if its causing you a problem. There is no way in which to increase the times it runs

So you think multiplying the mysql timeout by 200 solves the problem 😉

Normally these big tasks are done step by step, like rebuilding the search index. I suspect that you are not doing the entire delete task in one command.
