    Can we delete files from the ftp_from_exlibris directory?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Description:
    We are running out of space on our /exlibris filesystem. Can we delete files from the ftp_from_exlibris directory?

    Resolution:
    In general, the files in the ftp_from_exlibris directory are files which could, if necessary, be re-ftp-ed. (Though in some cases this could be time-consuming.)

    Any files which pertain to older versions can be deleted. For instance, if you are now on version 20 / Oracle 11 and you see files which pertain to version 18 / Oracle 10, you can delete them.

    If staff at your site ftp-ed the file, then you should feel free to delete it.

    If Ex Libris staff ftp-ed the file and you are uncertain what version it pertains to, then you should contact Ex Libris Support.

    Files for old Service Packs can be deleted. The files for the *current* Service Pack should be saved (in case it is necessary to reinstall it).
