You can switch versions in the menu on the left/at the top.
Check your current version with the following command:
composer show spatie/laravel-activitylog
After using the package for a while you might have recorded a lot of activity. This package provides an artisan command
activitylog:clean to clean the log.
Running this command will result in the deletion of all recorded activity that is older than the number of days specified in the
delete_records_older_than_days of the config file.
You can leverage Laravel's scheduler to run the clean up command now and then.
php artisan activitylog:clean
protected function schedule(Schedule $schedule)
If you want to automatically cleanup your
production system you should append the
--force option as the command will otherwise ask you to confirm the action. This is to prevent accidental data loss.
##Define the log to clean
If you want to clean just one log you can define it as command argument. It will filter the
log_name attribute of the
php artisan activitylog:clean my_log_channel
##Overwrite the days to keep per call
You can define the days to keep for each call as command option. This will overwrite the config for this run.
php artisan activitylog:clean --days=7
##MySQL - Rebuild index & get back space after clean.
After clean, you might experience database table size still allocated more than actual lines in table,
execute this line in MySQL to OPTIMIZE / ANALYZE table.
OPTIMIZE TABLE activity_log;
ANALYZE TABLE activity_log;
*this SQL operation will lock write/read of database, use ONLY when server under maintanance mode.
