Purge expired snippets
Snippets are removed as soon as they exceed their expiration date and get fetched by a client, however if they never get fetched this isn’t triggered. dpaste ships with a management command
cleanup_snippets that removes these expired snippets.
It’s sufficient to run it daily.
To run it locally do:
$ pipenv run ./managepy cleanup_snippets
Does not actually delete the snippets. This is useful for local testing.
Setup a Crontab
A crontab line might look like:
1 20 * * * /srv/dpaste.org/pipenv run manage.py cleanup_snippets > /dev/null
If you use the database session backend, you may also need to setup a crontab that removes the expired entries from the session database.
See the related Django Documentation for details.
