Files getting seemingly randomly deleted

Since Opentools.de has now gone away I've created this forum to house FAQs and support for this mod in phpBB2.

Files getting seemingly randomly deleted

Post by frustrated »

Hi All

I am running attahcment mod version 2.4.1 on phpBB version 2.0.21.

Basically the Mod is working fine such as uploading, downloading etc. Occasionally some posts with attachments are being deleted and I haven't got a clue why. They are there one minute and when the board is refreshed they disapear. They are being removed from the database and physically being removed from the file directory.

Is there anything that could be causing this and is there any fix for it?

Thanks in advance for your help and keep up the good work.

Nothing in this mod would cause that. What else do you have installed?

Hi Thanks for getting back!

We have nothing else installed other than the attachment mod. Is there any databse values that will set them to expire?

I really don't know what is causing it.

Excellent!

Someone had inadvertantly set up pruning!

Thanks for your help....even though it wasn't the attachments!
