Breaking: #78552 - Lowlevel LostFilesCommand parameters changed

See forge#78552


The existing CLI command within EXT:lowlevel for detecting and removing files within uploads/ which are not referenced by TYPO3 has been migrated to a Symfony Console command.

The command previously available via ./typo3/cli_dispatch.phpsh lowlevel_cleaner lost_files is now available via ./typo3/sysext/core/bin/typo3 cleanup:lostfiles and allows the following CLI options to be set:

--update-refindex - updates the reference index before scanning for lost files. If not set, the user is asked if the task should be run --exclude=uploads/mypics/,uploads/psa - a list of paths of files to exclude within uploads/ --dry-run - do not delete the files but only list the files that are not connected to the TYPO3 system anymore

The PHP class of the old CLI command TYPO3\CMS\Lowlevel\LostFilesCommand has been removed.


Calling the old CLI command ./typo3/cli_dispatch.phpsh lowlevel_cleaner lost_files will result in an error message.

Affected Installations

Any TYPO3 instances using the lowlevel cleaner for finding and deleting lost files.


Update the CLI call on your servers to the new command line and available options as shown above.
