Is there a Drupal 7 equivalent for the Referential Integrity for CCK module?


There is a sandbox project for a D7 port that performs cleanup on cron.

Otherwise drupal supports databases that do not enforce referential integrity, so it has not (to my knowledge) been a core issue.

  • hey can i ask another question here too? @triskelion what is cron btw? that experimental project says "Unlike Referential Integrity for CCK, this version is performing the data cleanup at cron run " so can you enlighten me what is cron? – Belmark Caday Mar 22 '13 at 19:49
  • In the *nix world, maintenance tasks are performed on a schedule by the servers. The daemon is called cron. Drupal also performs site maintenance tasks by a schedule, and those tasks are enabled in modules by a hook_cron function. In other words, the database cleanup would not happen immediately, but on the next scheduled maintenance run. – Triskelion Mar 22 '13 at 19:52
  • ok i get you.. last question swear. what is *nix and what is daemon? – Belmark Caday Mar 22 '13 at 19:54
  • Unix, linux and other unix clones. And a deamon is a program that runs in the background to provide a service. – Triskelion Mar 22 '13 at 19:56
