That should technically work, but you want to be sure you have the timestamp column indexed.

Based on what I’m seeing, it looks as if you mixed PHP in there.

Here’s how my garbage collector works for my IABot interface.

I'd like to issue a command to a database our team manages to clean all data older than 30 days.

Browsing around I've found that:

DELETE FROM $table WHERE $timestamp < NOW() - INTERVAL 30 DAY

could work, but I'd like to check with you first just in case you have a better command or ideas.

Thanks in advance for your help.
