Seafile Pro with Online GC - Auto or not?

Hi Everyone,

This topic is unclear to me. There are a few posts online that say different things.

Is GC run under Pro automatically? Or do we need to setup a cron to run seaf-gc.sh every few months?

The post here says it’s not done automatically, and one need to run it when required:

This post claims its run automatically.

This is also unclear in the manual. It only states that an “Online” run is possible.

So which is it? Auto or manual? And why not include in the manual to setup a cron for this in Pro?

You have to do it manually by default. Of course you can create a cronjob for this.

Thanks. I will create a cron
