History Retention

Post by dominicparks » Tue Aug 28, 2007 10:40 am


How long does Logalot retain messages in the History table?

If "forever" is the answer, what is the perferred method of purging old data?

Can the retention period be adjusted to be 6 months, 1 year, etc.

Logalot, by design, does not delete any history. The history tables are retained unless you manually remove them.

The best method of removal is to use the DROP TABLE command. Drop the history tables you don't wish to retain using either MySQL CLI or a MySQL GUI.
