I have just consulted with a famous company that deals with wordpress and database because my DB is oversized. They found this problem:
“AALB stands for Amazon Affiliates Link Builder. Each entry takes up around 0.1mb. (Each entry relates to a link in one of your posts) Even though 0.1mb sounds small, you have roughly 7500 of these entries/links in your database. So 0.1 x 6000 = 600mb.! Reduce the number of links/entries on your site. (This would be likely be a very tedious manual process).
Contact the plugin developer and ask them to see if they can find a way to optimize their content in the database.”
Before I uninstall everything and delete every single link by hand, do you have a solution?
P.S. Furthermore the plugin consumes a lot of CPU resources.
