Remove Large Media from my site

Please completely remove Large Media but not LFS from my site refcode.netlify.app *

I have read the guide here and have a backup.

(*I wonder if you would go ahead and do it if I just put any random account name not belonging to me, or if you actually have a way to verify that I actually own that account? Seems like a great opportunity for malicious actors to mess up other peoples sites.)

Hi, @brenton. I do check to confirm that the person’s email address on these forums matches the email address of the team owner (as our support team can see both email addresses).

So, after confirming that, I have removed the Large Media add-on from the site now.

Would you please push the commit removing .lfsconfig to the upstream repository? This will trigger a new build.

Please keep in mind that you might want to run the command below after deleting the .lfsconfig file:

git lfs push --all origin

This will sync the local repo’s LFS objects with the Git LFS service at the original Git host. It pushes any new binary blobs to their LFS service which may have been added after you moved the LFS service to Large Media.

Please let us know if there are any issues with the new build or deployed site.

Thank you, I believe that it worked and I’m up and running again. Appreciate your help!
