I installed Nextcloud on shared hostings at 1&1.com and everything worked fine for nearly a year
Until one day I couldn’t upload anymore stuff
I called 1&1 and they told me I reached the limit
The plan I’ve got said it was “unlimited weh hosting space” but in fact they meant maximum 2TB data and not more than 262.000 files
I still had a long way to reach the 2TB
But I hit the 262.000 files !
That’s quite a number
I looked into my files and it appeared a lot of them were from backups Nextcloud created
I managed to delete nearly 100.000 files just by connecting through FTP and Filezilla :
- nextcloud/data and then delete old backup versions I didn’t want anymore in theses files :
- updater-ocdataXXXX (XXX is your number I presume)
Some version backup contained more than… 20.000 files !
I will surely come back now that I know to erase previous backups, letting only the last one in
QUESTION : If someone knows how to program Nextcloud to do this automatically, I would be happy to hear it !
Thanks Nextcloud, keep up the good work !
