I have been a long-time user of the plugin “Optimize Database after Deleting Revisions”. This plugin used to be the best free plugin to clean/optimize the database.
But over time the interface is very outdated and doesn’t provide quickly the information I needed. Besides I had to clean a database with an awful lot of “Orphaned Post Meta” and this plugin went to a white screen not showing what – or even if – is was doing.
Then I found this free / paid alternative. The interface immediately provides in depth information about the status of the database. Fabulous. Cleaning the awful lot of “Orphaned Post Meta” that I mentioned before, took quite a while, but it shows a percentage progress. And even more important the plugin does this in small chunks to avoid time-out problems at the hosting server.
I decided to go for the Pro (paid) version, because every time a developer makes a great plugin, I think he/she deserves the money when it is reasonable priced, like this one.
Finally I am so glad that the Pro support is done by the developer himself. So no more service-desks with unknowing people telling you to try all things you already have done and then have to move it to a “tier-2” engineer…!
The question I had for Jordy were clearly answered. More than 5 stars!
