Subject: Find old pages, which were edited by me
I want to clean up our dokuwiki.

During the last ten years I created and edited a lot of pages.

I want to clean up all pages which were not touched since three years.

I guess a lot of them can get deleted.

But I am not the only user. I only want to work on the pages
where I did create the most content.


How would you do this?

Are there any tools which could help me to do this?

My suggestion would be: Once you find a page you want to delete, delete it. Do not try to automate the process.

Hi Virk.

thank you for your reply.

I did what you said since ten years. If I saw old stuff I cleaned up.
Either I deleted my old stuff or I wrote to the author.

But now it is different: I am leaving. I will work for a new company in six weeks.

I would like to delete now, since it is much easier for me to decide what is old
and what not.

I have our wiki running here on our own server. If I had your "problem" I would try to directly look at the server's data directory and find all the files which were not changed within the last 3 years. These perhaps could then be deleted, but links in the wiki will then point to non-existing pages. Secondarily you will need to re-index your wiki.

How many pages (roughly) are we talking about?
