Automatically Delete Call Recordings in FreePBX

A simple script to delete call recordings. Note that this has been designed to work hand-in-hand with our other script, that coverts the recordings to MP3 to save space: FreePBX – convert WAV call recordings to MP3

You can easily modify the script to delete call recordings that are in WAV format, or for different periods of time, by altering the “*.mp3” to “*.wav” and by modifying the +365 to +30 +60 +90 etc.
