Continuing earlier discussion as the issue persists.
So I have maximum local backups set to 3, but Discourse does not delete older backups. I have S3 offsite backups enabled and they work. I have the setting enabled not to delete anything from S3. Backups are done every night.
- I cannot accurately pinpoint when this has started happening, but the timeline points to early-mid August. It has worked before. This may hint towards Discourse 1.5 -> 1.6.1 upgrade which I performed around that time (11th of August)
- I have tried redefining the number of backups to keep, there has been a number of _launcher rebuild_s and reboots after that. Still the issue persists.
I have limited sysadmin skillz, but if instructed I am happy to provide any logs or data that might be of any help. The problem is quite severe, since the backups are 0.25GB’s each so if I forget to clean them manually, I will run out of disk space rather soon.
