Support » Fixing WordPress » Unknown Database Tables

  • Resolved RabNehpets


    I’ve done a lot of troubleshooting to speed up my site lately. While optimizing and repairing database tables using the “WP-DBManager” I found a number of tables which I don’t think I need any more:


    I’ve been running this install since 2008. I dabbled in thesis, but uninstalled it. (I use Woo Canvas now) I tried a quote rotator but uninstalled it. I don’t ever remember using a flicker plugin. I see Wassup is a real-time stats plugin, but I don’t remember ever using it.

    None of the associated plugins are installed or even loaded.

    I’m nervous messing around with the database. Do you think it’s safe to drop these tables?

    Thanks for the advice!

    These are not core tables and the names seem to indicate where they were used, so it should be safe to drop them.

    Take a backup of the database first.

    Thanks cubecolour,

    I backed up and dropped those tables (wassup was huge). I’ve tested the site and there’s no ill effects.
