I have a folder named /var/discource/shared/strandalone.backup using about 10 gb og data - Is this folder safe to delete. It seems really old?
Do you mean
It contains the local backups of your forum.
Do you automatically send your backups in some cloud without keeping a local copy? If you do, maybe your backup folder contains obsolete backups?
Probably so. It sounds like someone made a copy of that directory long ago as a backup of /var/discourse/shared/standalone. If you want to be extra paranoid, you can rename it, reboot your server, and make sure everything still works before you delete it.
I renamed it to “old” and did a reboot - it still works. Will delete it now. Thanks for your help
