Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » Thousands of transient records in Options table

  • Resolved Perrorist


    I’ve been having difficulty copying the database to a test site. The problem was caused by the Options table having nearly 80,000 records with option_names beginning with _transient_

    I can’t even begin to understand why these are necessary, but they need to be removed or at least limited to a reasonable number.

    Could you please let me know how to handle this.

    I’m sorry to hear you’re running into this problem. There is currently a known issue with transients (please see this post for more information), but the workaround is to use a plugin like Delete Expired Transients (which is a third party plugin, not affiliated with us) to clean them up.

    Unfortunately, I don’t have a timeframe as to when a permanent solution will be released, but I have added this thread to our internal ticket for this issue. This way, you’ll be notified here as soon as we have an update.

    Thank you for your patience as we work to get this resolved!
