Delete CDR entries daily, that are older then 6 month

We need to remove entries on our FreePBX that are older then six month. I found other topics from 2017 but wanted to make sure that this is still the way to go. Can anybody confirm that?

Create a script called (for example) “DeleteCDR8Mos.sql” in your “asterisk root directory” or in the “root” home directory. The example below assumes it’s in the “/root” directory.

use asteriskcdrdb;
repair table cdr;
repair table cel;
delete from cdr where calldate < DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 6 MONTH);
delete from cel where eventtime < DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 6 MONTH);
optimize table cdr;
optimize table cel;

In your crontab on the server (important part, since access to the database is limited to localhost), add something like:

X X X X X X mysql -u root asteriskcdrdb < /root/DeleteCDR8Mos.sql

The “X” entries are there for your time/date/day entries […]

We are running PBX Firmware: 12.7.6-1904-1.sng7 with PBX Service Pack:

It should still work.
