Asterisk Script for Recordings to Move or Copy -n- number of days old (an archiving tool if you may)


Here’s' a script that moves or copies certain files (in my case Asterisk recordings) of anything above a certain date (as defined in the CLI) to a destination you pick.
You must first define the sourcepath, sourcefilename, destination and an option to flag move or just copy.
Place it anywhere and execute ./archivefiles 10
-> which means move/copy files that are over 10 days old from date to a desired location.
You could of course run it in cron if you like on a regular basis. Say you run ./
Here’s the script. Copy from the start till the end.
1) nano /usr/bin/archivefiles # create it
2) paste start –> end of script below # copy the script
3) chmod +x /usr/bin/archivefiles # make it executable
NOTE: Make sure your date/time in server is consistent/correct.
