    Unable to clear recycle bin

    Hi guys,

    I have a whole lot of nodes in my recycle bin and apparently Umbraco isn't too happy about clearing the entire recycle bin since it just stands still.

    Is there a SQL query to do so?

    Hey Amir,

    I tried following the tips in the thread and I was able to execute some of the SQL, however a lot of them fails with errors like:

    DELETE FROM cmsContent WHERE nodeId IN (SELECT id FROM umbracoNode WHERE (path LIKE '%-21%' AND id!=-21) OR (path LIKE '%-20%' AND id!=-20));
    
    Error: The primary key value cannot be deleted because references to this key still exist. [ Foreign key constraint name = FK_cmsMedia_cmsContent_nodeId ]
    
    DELETE FROM umbracoUser2NodePermission WHERE nodeId IN (SELECT id FROM umbracoNode WHERE (path LIKE '%-21%' AND id!=-21) OR (path LIKE '%-20%' AND id!=-20));
    
    Error: The specified table does not exist. [ umbracoUser2NodePermission ]
    

    I attempted to manually clear the content and media recycle bin but it doesn't work. If I manually clear 1 item in the bin I get a 404:

        Request error: The URL returned a 404 (not found):
    /umbraco/backoffice/UmbracoApi/Media/DeleteById
    

    The working SQL affected a lot of items so something has happened, I just cannot empty the bin.
