Thanks for your prompt response!
Will either pkg clean -a or pkg delete -a uninstall any of the installed 
ports? There is over 1000 of them and I wouldn't like to have to install 
all of them again from scratch.

I don't mind cleaning the cache and the database since the package 
repository is served over nginx from the same desktop.
