Version retention obligation not working


I am using Nextcloud 24, with php 7.4, installed on the Linux server of a web hosting service that I am renting (Infomaniak).

I wanted to have automatic deletion of file versions after some delay, so I added the line “‘versions_retention_obligation’ => ‘auto, 10’,” to the file config.php to which I have access through FTP. After a couple months I realise that this has not worked since some files have versions from more than a month…

I have found the same question asked in 2018, but remaining without answer : File versions not deleted as configured

Thanks for your help!

I would like to know this too.
My Nextcloud instance is also on a shared/hosted server (I installed NC via Softaculous on cPanel).

It should be easier to configure the version retention protocol. For example, by entering a number in a textbox on one of the admin | settings forms.
It should not be necessary for me to edit config.php
