Support » Plugin: WP-Optimize - Clean, Compress, Cache. » wp_postmeta – excessive database

  • Resolved mrc17


    Hi guys,

    Thanks for the awesome plugin.

    I was trying to clean up my SQLdatabase (140go which I know is huuuge) so I installed WPoptimize.

    When I first installed the plugin it told me there was 32.000 postmeta to be deleted.

    I then launched the optimization (only the ones without the “careful” icon), reloaded the page and the 32k postmeta to be deleted disappeared.

    What’s weird is that WPoptimize says my database is 162Mo, however, on my CPanel account I can the mySQL datat is still 143Go. How can that be? I only have that one site associated with this database.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

  • Most hosting providers don’t update these stats stuff immediately. It will sync after some time.

    Hi Marc, Sorry for the delay in responding.

    WP-Optimize will only add the size of the tables that belong to the WordPress install (those with the corresponding prefix – ex. wp_).

    What does it say when you use phpmyadmin for example?
