Remove UTW mysql tables?

  • Matt Wiebe


    Question: I’ve ugraded to 2.3, moved all of my UTW tags into the native tagging structure, and I’d like to clean up my mysql database. As far as I can tell, the tables that I should delete now are:


    Of course, it goes without saying that I’ll do a backup before doing this…

    For bonus points: what do I delete out of the Options table?

    i think you can delte wp_post2tag and the synonyms one, but don’t telete the wp_tags. i think that is part of 2.3.

    As for cleaning the options table. just get the clean options plugin. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/clean-options/

    i had some problems with running it on 2.3, but it will at least bring up a list of all the unnecessary items in the options and you can then go into phpmyadmin and delete them yourself!

    thanks sahaskatta, i’ll look into that plugin

    after further exploration, i think that wp_tags is utw-specific. wp2.3 is storing both tags and categories within wp_term_* tables.



    Thanks for asking what I would have asked. I’ve also dropped both the wp_tags and wp_post2tags tables with no errors so far. (:

    Just to conclude my mini-quest, I dropped wp_tags, wp_post2tag and wp_tag_synonyms with no problems at all.

    Just make sure that you’ve already imported your UTW tags into wp2.3 first! And of course, back up before doing anything crazy like this…
