I'm trying to delete old indices, but I can't get it working. I have curator version 5.1 installed. I found info stating to use the following command
curator --host localhost delete indices --older-than 30 --time-unit days --timestring %Y-%m-%dt%H but that errors with no such --host option. I tried using the host IP & the hostname as well. I know deleting indices can be set up with a cron job, but right now, I just want to be able to delete manually.
I've seen info about a YML file for curator, but for the life of me I can't find it. If I need to create it, where does it need to be located? I'm just all kinds of confused about curator... I'm familair with Linux, but don't get to use it as much as I'd like, so be nice...
