How to delete logs?

It is no longer possible to delete the log starting with version 4.6.0. You can only do it manually from the database, but this implies certain possibly unwanted results.

There are 3 tables that take into account the reports and the number of downloads:

  • download_log: used for more detailed analysis + the tables in the reports with the top downloads and user downloads
  • dlm_reports_log : used for the chart
  • dlm_downloads: used for calculating download count in front, All Downloads and Dashboard widget

Deleting the dlm_downloads table will affect the front, dashboard and general download counts. The other 2 tables are the ones that are required to process the Reports page.

We recommend that you do a back-up of your site before you delete anything.
