CEL and CDR data remove from disk


how to remove this data from db to reclaim hdd space?


With a SQL sentence. The database you want to modify is asteriskcdrdb and the tables are cdr and cel. If you want to delete some records, use the DELETE sentence with a WHERE clause. If you want to remove all records, use the TRUNCATE sentence.

SSH to the server.
mysql -p
use asteriskcdrdb;
DELETE from cdr WHERE calldate < ‘2018-12-31 00:00:00’;

In the example above any CDR before 2019 will be deleted. Change the date to whatever date you would like to use.

Actually that will deleted everything up Midnight of the 31st, which means there will be the CDRs for the 31st still in there. You need to do this as 2019-01-01 00:00:00 if you want to get everything before 2019 deleted.

:blush: right… but he should get the concept.


I knew this command before, but now error has occurred:

ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near ‘00:00:00’’ at line 1

Maria v. 5.5.60


You need to use the to_date function, or whatever the equivalent to that is available on MariaDB
