I have a odd issue in a wordpress installation where there appears to be over 100,000 images, in the media library, I am trying to find out how I can locate these files on the server, and delete them all.
PHP has a time out issue, so using mass delete, returns an error so thats not a good method, deleting 300 images at a time is not a good option imagine how long that would take.
I have deleted all the images in the uploads folder, however apparently the database still holds references to these files, can someone point me to a method of using PHP admin to delete the references to these images.
Any suggestions would be welcomed.
