I haven’t had the akismet installed so now I have 10 000 spam comments.
When I clik “check for spam” button the comments page I get an internal sever error (500)
How can I remove all this spam comments (no by processing it 25 at a time)
if you Akismet and wp 2.6, you can do “Check for Spam” under Comments.
I’m not quite sure what you mean. You don’t use Akismet? So how did you mark the comments as spam? Manually or by blacklisting?
If you have 10 000 spam comments in the database and want to delete them, have a look at CJD Spam Nuker:
I used to use this before I started using Akismet, but I can’t vouch for it working under the latest WP versions.
I recommend Akismet anyway, it’s actually very good.
I deleted all comments from the database ;/
