Maintenance - Purge Old Data

As any system or application that uses a database to store information, Telegram Explorer needs, eventually, database maintenance to ensure proper work and remove old data.

NOTE: While other commands can be executed side-by-side, or, simultaneously, the 'purge_old_data' command needs to be executed alone, so, stop all TeX instances that uses the same configuration file, specially the 'listen' command before perform the maintenance.

  • config > Required - Created Configuration File Path
  • limit_days > Optional - Number of Days of past to remove the messages and files.
