In this issue of Maintenance Monday, we look at a way to locate and review large files in your Joomla install (over 2 megabytes). It's another way to save space on your web hosting account.



  • The video is titled "Reclaim Disk Space! Locate and Review Large Files in Joomla 🛠 Maintenance Monday Live Stream #009 - YouTube."
    - The speaker is Tim Davis, who is a Joomla enthusiast.
    - Tim discusses a special Maintenance Monday live stream because his wife has been away for 12 days, and he plans to do maintenance work around the house.
    - He decides to focus on the topic of locating and reviewing large files in Joomla during the live stream.
    - Tim mentions that My Joomla com provides an audit report for Joomla sites, highlighting files over 2 megabytes in size.
    - He emphasizes that having large files on your site, like videos or pictures, is not necessarily a problem, but you should remove unnecessary large files to free up disk space.
    - Tim shows a list of large files over 2 megabytes found on his wife's Joomla site using the audit report.
    - He discusses specific files, their sizes, and their ages, indicating that some are outdated and no longer needed.
    - Tim advises viewers to make a backup of their site before deleting any files in case of mistakes.
    - He demonstrates how to access and delete unnecessary large files from the site's file manager.
    - Tim also mentions a large cache file related to the sh404SEF extension that he plans to investigate.
    - He concludes by promoting the usefulness of the audit tool for maintaining Joomla sites and encourages viewers to subscribe to his channel for more tutorials and updates.
    - He thanks the viewers for watching and invites them to engage in the chat.
