Cleanup of tmp/download_cache


  1. can we delete stuff there without losing anything?
  2. should it be done via a cronjob/systemd timer on a regular base? If so … how …? find -mtime +x or some rake task?

A few follow up questions

  1. if the “download linked images” feature is enabled … does that also store those files in s3?
  2. how to migrate those files into s3? it seems we have like 15G of files still locally and we would like to have them all in s3. but the rake task is missing in the rake --tasks output.

with kind regards,


yes, tmp can be nuked, to keep stuff safe always restart service after nuking.

download linked images create uploads that get stored on s3
