  • I have a question about the various Database Reset plugins.

    Which (if any) of these will clean out the tables, removing unused tables and all the junk from the options table while leaving the data for currently installed (but maybe deactivated) plugins and themes alone?

    In other words, cleaning the database would have list all entries from all plugins and themes currently installed plus of course the core code and not touch them but remove the unwanted contents.

    This is quite a big task which would have to mimic all installed plugin/theme activity although presumably as long as the plugin/theme maintains the correct prefix for tables and entries within tables, it may not be so big a problem.

    I am not secure that any of the present database cleaning plugins will do this – they mainly refer to returning the intallation to a ‘virgin’ state which could imply they will remove data from activated and deactivated plugins and themes.
