I have deleted my wp_comments table from phpMyAdmin.
Instead of the normal 9, I now just have 8 tables in phpMyAdmin.
Apparently there are other tables that must link to or reference the comments table because I now get an error message on my website.
Does anyone know which tables refer to the wp_comments table and which functions I need to disable from those tables so they will no longer refer to the wp_comments table.
This is the first error message I get:
Table '_wp1.wp_comments' doesn't exist]
SELECT ID, COUNT( comment_ID ) AS ccount FROM wp_posts LEFT JOIN wp_comments ON ( comment_post_ID = ID AND comment_approved = '1') WHERE post_status = 'publish' AND ID IN (12) GROUP BY ID
This is the other:
[Table '_wp1.wp_comments' doesn't exist]
SELECT comment_author, comment_author_url, comment_ID, comment_post_ID FROM wp_comments WHERE comment_approved='1' ORDER BY comment_date_gmt DESC LIMIT 5
I have deleted most other comment sections from the WP Dashboard
