[resolved] Deleting STATPRESS from MySQL? (3 posts)

    My WordPress MySQL database is 20% over maximum ISP alotment. When I went to optimize the databases, I noted that 90% of my WordPress mySQL database is actually "Table: wp_statpress"

    I have deactivated the plugin, but the database remains. Can I safely drop the wp_statpress table?

    Run a local install.

    Check the WP db tables on a fresh install (phpmyadmin), run the statpress installer, check the tables, de-activate the plugin and check what's left compared to a fresh install of wordpress...

    I see this with some plugins, they're not coded to drop the created tables... or just fail to do it....

    If you see anything with statpress appended to a db table name, then you can proberly delete/drop it...

    I can definitely confirm they don't drop the database when you disable.

    I re-enabled; when to options; drastically reduced the items it collects (by default) and how long it keeps them (by default); went to "update statepress" (which cleaned up the table); and then went to my MySQL control panel and optimized the table.

    This cut 50MB off, and I am now at 75MB of a cap of 100MB.

    Thank you!
