Files not Deleting as expected

help

#1

Hey Folks,

Just looking for more information here. I think I'm doing something wrong, but I'm not 100% positive.

I have an Owncloud 9.1 installation working well On Centos6, However, none of the files that are past their retention obligation are getting deleted for either versions of the deleted files app.

I have the commands set correctly in the config.php - my cron is set to run on AJAX. My question is, how does the sever handle the processing of these deleted files? Is it indeed running on cron or through some other mechanism.

For posterity my config file for the retention looks like:

'trashbin_retention_obligation' => 'auto,10',
'versions_retention_obligation' => 'auto,10',

Any insight would be appreciated.

Please read the manual about cron-jobs:
https://doc.owncloud.org/server/9.0/admin_manual/configuration_server/background_jobs_configuration.html?highlight=cron

"Each time a user (admin) visits the ownCloud page, a single background job is executed.". Please switch to system CRON and ping us if the problem still persists. It could happen that your cron has never been executed
