Server :: Script To Delete Files Older Than X Days Fstab Has Noatime Enabled?

Jul 26, 2011

I have set up a simple find and delete script for files older than X days. The problem is that some of the files that are send in this share are transfered from an archive server and creation/modified date remains the same when copied and the age of them could be a year ago or older and they get deleted over night by the script.For performance reasons the raid is mounted with noatime in fstab.Do you see any solution to this problem except enabling atime?I'm thinking at some more advanced script that writes the list of added files once a day and marks them for deletion after some time.

General :: Command To Copy Files Older Than <n> Days Keeping Dir Structure?

Jul 6, 2010

I'm trying to truncate a postfix Maildata directory for one of our users. I want to be able to move any files older than <n> days to a new location, but also copying the relevant directory structure. This should be doable in the one comman. I've used find to locate the files, and mv to move them, but I can't figure out how to build the directoryt structure on the fly in the new location.

This is what I have so far:

Code:
find /Maildata/editor -mtime +42 -type f -exec mv -v {} /EditorEmailOld/ ; > ~/editor.txt

Ubuntu :: Rsync --delete Doesn't Delete Superflous Files

Sep 25, 2010

I am trying to use an old box as backup server. I have tried a couple of possibilities along the lines of:

Quote:

rsync -a --delete --progress --log-file=/home/$USER/info.txt -e ssh /home /etc root@192.168.0.106:/mnt/back

The problem is it does not delete files that has been removed from my local system?
I run the command as root on the local system.

(I realize I should properly not ssh into the server as the server's root but I'm having trouble with the permissions and I want to make sure everything else works before messing around with it)

OpenSUSE Network :: Move Files After N Days?

Sep 24, 2010

I have a script that moves files after 60 days from the FTP folder over to a trash folder which is not accessible by the FTP. From there I can delete the files whenever the drive get's full. That works fine so far.
The only thing that bothers me is that files moved to ".Trash" are not in any folder structure anymore (one big directory with the deleted files in it).

When I do a "ls -la" on the array {} I see the file names including the folders. I'm not sure if the find command or the mv command forgets about the directories.

This is the script: bash -c 'date;find /Volumes/data1/test/ -mtime +60 -type f -exec mv {} /Volumes/data1/.Trash/ ;;date' >> ~/mylog

CentOS 5 :: Account Password Changes Unexpectedly Once Every Few Days

May 5, 2009

I'm running 5.2, mostly updated. I've got a user account that is really only used by some clients (Polycom phones) to log into vsftpd. Once every few days or so, the password on the account changes to something other than what I've specified, and I can't figure out why. The other user accounts on the system don't seem to be affected, though none of the other accounts are used by/for vsftpd.

chage shows that the account password should never expire, so I don't think that's what's happening. I'm wondering if VSFTPD is just not playing nicely with PAM. Is there a way to explicitly prevent vsftp from changing a user password? I can't seem to find anything like this.I'm not sure if this makes any difference, but the system is clustered using heartbeat/drbd. The users are unique to each of the nodes in the cluster, though, so I don't think this should really have any effect.

Ubuntu :: BASH Script To Move Files More Than 30 Days Old?

May 12, 2011

I need to move files to a backup drive if they are over 30 days old. All I could find, when looking for scripts, were ways to sort files by date and the solutions were all over the place and nothing seemed simple or good.

I've thought of building my own running "ls -al > filelist.txt" type of approach and then processing the file, but not sure that is best way. An array would be much easier and eliminate the file, but never done an array in bash.
