[Contribution] Reset Database

Recommended Posts

Reset Database Contribution



Addon: 9111


This feature allows administrators to clear non-permanent tables of the database
and delete images from the file system.

The most common use of this feature is to clear out data from the database, and
delete any images, which have been included as a result of testing and trying
out contributions before going live.

In general, tables that have been set up as permanent or semi-permanent information
(such as configuration, geographical data, tax codes etc) are not touched. To clear these,
the best option would be a complete clean re-installation of the database.
It is assumed that no images are permanent or semi-permanent, so all can be deleted.

The feature allows fine control over which tables and image classes are to be cleared
but macro tasks allow grouped actions which address mutually related entities as a unit.

Fine control over images is made possible only if you have installed the
Protected Images contribution (8560).

This contribution is mostly original, but the feature was more than a little inspired by the
Clear Down Database contribution by Geoffrey Walton (5793)
