Clearing up our server

Post by PeterJ » Mon Jul 29, 2019 3:07 pm

Over the time the website has been active we have created lots of temporary folders. I'm just clearing up some of these (but not deleting anything!).

Let me know if you notice anything strange.

Thanks. :) Should hopefully go smoothly.

Spoilered note for Linux people:

Just be careful of RM ;) moreso if its being used with either -F or worse still -R (!) :oops:
Having said that, MV with the -F at least you can get them back again. :) Only annoyance I've had previously (on mine) were curious file/dir permissions being set for some reason, no doubt my fault but at least not difficult to put right.

Thanks @spider

The server does run.on Ubuntu 16.04 (I will upgrade to 18.04 at some point), and I use a mixture of Ubuntu, Fedora, Arch, Mint and Windows at home.

Cent OS for me for servings. Its not 100% ideal probably (for me at least) but its what seems to be offered, just saves an awful lot of (me) messing about! :oops:

Elsewhere, desktops are various flavours of windoze unfortunately. I could not get on with the newer Ubuntu's despite trying them, and various flavours of them. I think I preferred the legacy Gnome desktop rather than the newer ones, and not been 100% keen on KDE but the latest ones look half decent.

Back on topic: All should be well "here" I'm quite sure. :) :)
