MySQL Issue? (2 posts)

    This morning, I logged into my site and found that it had suddenly exploded in size. My SQL DB's increased in size dramatically (at least that's what it looks like). However, when I go into the phpadmin to look at the tables, it shows the table sizes are only 1.4 MB, while the size of the whole DB is over 500 MB.

    My site admin believes I might have gotten "hacked," but I'm not quite sure how or why. Anyone know of any wordpress vulnerabilities that might cause the DB to suddenly grow in size or display one size in one place and another in the tables section?

    Try to optimize your database (use phpmyadmin)

    Usually it 'caused by plugins like broken link checker, STT2, visitors log, etc.
