How do I mass delete photos older than 2 months?
« on: January 16, 2005, 03:30:11 am »

I have a Coppermine 1.2.1 and about 4,000 worth of photos  so I want to mass delete  like 3,500 photos and leaving about 500 on the server ..

I don't want to go Edit pics and click each delete pic  and I notice in Edit pic it doesn't reverse date to the oldest photo  .. what I want to do is delete all photos but keep up to 2 month old worth of photos on the server ..

Thanks

Coppermine doesn't have such a function.  You can write SQL to delete all pictures with an upload date <= 2 months ago, and use phpMyAdmin to run it.  Then you'll have to use your FTP program to delete the pictures (thumb_, normal_, and the original image).

Oh well I hope in future version they would consider adding something like that .. to delete all photo/file based on days months years etc etc .. maybe a cronjob that does a nightly clean up to remove older photos  based on what you set for ..

cron jobs are only avilable for a minority of users, so they are not an option that is being considered for the core code of future coppermine versions. However, the clean-up could be triggered by another event, and such a feature might be helpfull for others as well. Moving this thread from "cpg1.2 support" to "feature requests"...

an admin trigger will be just as good fo rme .. if there was a option to set the date and then click on some icon to delete all the photo or remove all the photo based on what I set ..  such a feature like that would even be just as good if I would have to logon on every other week or so to do daily clean up .. I would still like a feature like that in admin area ..

understood, your feature request get's noted. There's no telling though if or when it's going to be done. If you absolutely need a feature, you will have to code it I'm afraid.
