large table size (4 posts)

    I'm seeing a strange trend with all four of the blogs I admin, located all on one Linux server. The wp-options table is around 10 - 15 MB. Every other table is under 1MB, usually in the low KB.

    I found this thread about a large table, but it was in relation to a specific plugin which I am not using:

    Anything I can do to troubleshoot this?

    Browse the contents of the table (with phpmyadmin) and see what kind of junk is in there.

    Ok, I did an XML export and am looking at it. Under widget_categories, there are probably several 1000 backslashes! Also, it appears that the RSS feeds from WordPress.org are all stored in the wp-options file. Why?!

    I guess they have to put them somewhere. :>)
