How to delete backups?

I regularly back up my Anthias instances and after I download the backup from the web interface, I usually SSH into the instance and delete the backups (they linger and take up a lot of space), but it’s no longer under /home/pi/screenly/static, but rather the nginx container under /data/screenly/static. I know how to exec bash into this, but when I try to delete the files I get the error:

Is there a different way I should be doing this? Thanks. :slight_smile:

You could try and change this part of the docker-compose file to rw:

I think this was never something to look into because no one is usually backing up the Assets so constantly that they fill up Gigabytes of data in the SD card.

Got it, I’ll try that. Where is the docker compose file usually stored? I see one in /home/pi/screenly, but I thought this directory was temp from installation.

the is the correct file, you must save the file after the changes and then run ./screenly/bin/ to rebuild the containers.

Is this the right spot? “- resin-data:/data”?

It was “ro”, I changed it to “rw”, rebuilt the containers, but still getting the read-only error unfortunately:

I sent the screenshot that shows the file name and circled the part.

Ohhh nevermind I’m in the wrong yml, I should be in the .overrides.yml!

This worked, thanks so much! :slight_smile:
