Mass delete system recordings


Working in FREEPBX 5.21.65-12. We use a lot of system recordings and needed to clear them to minimize scrolling when looking for them. I deleted the recordings from the /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/custom directory thinking that that would also remove the deleted recordings from the the web GUI, but we can still see the recording names in “System Recordings”. Is there an easy way to make the recordings we see in the “System Recordings” module match what is in the /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/custom directory?

Appreciate your help in advance.



I found the table in the DB where the recordings are stored. I can delete the records that I don’t want from here. That’s one solution. Is there an easy way to tell FREEPBX to update the table with whatever is in that directory?

Thanks again


There is no easy way to do this.
