I installed every up to date cleaning but nothing touched uninstalled plugins. Until I installed WPDBSpringClean.

But I only used the Unused table search. Worked like a charm.

I did NOT use DB table optimize. I think that would be too risky with such an old plugin. So keep that in mind.

Host will 500 this out

No matter what times you set on WP, certain hosts will time-out this plugin. Ultimately, you will get a 500 error. This needs to be re-structured so the process runs in the background slowly, then give you a report. Otherwise, it's a pretty useless plugin.

Worked Great on May 1st, 2015 Even Though Plugin Hasn't Been Updated

I've tried many plugins since the inception of my blog in 2008. I've deleted many of the plugins but they left many tables in MyPhpAdmin even through I had deleted the plugins and when offered, the files as well. I still had a lot of old database tables leftover.

I looked for a plugin that could clean up the database tables since I was concerned that all the used data would slow down the functionality of my site. I found this plugin.

Most people that have reviewed the plugin said good things, but a handful gave me caution, therefore, I backed up my files and database and uploaded the WPDBSpringClean plugin and activated it.

It was intuitive to use and there were simple short instructions built right in to the plugin's interface.

it worked beautifully well. It appears that it locates the old database tables associated with any deleted plugins. It doesn't seem to locate any tables of installed plugins regardless if they were activated or not.

It gives you a ticker box next to each located table for deletion, so you can pick and choose. I chose to delete all of the ones it identified. I used the default settings of the plugin.

Afterwards, I clicked on the optimize tab in the plugin and it only found that comments needed to be optimized. I did that as well.

Nothing I wanted was deleted. The site ran faster and I've had no problems at all.

It would be great if the developer of this plugin would occasionally verify that the plugin works with the latest versions of WordPress, but they seem to have moved on. They don't even answer support comments on this forum.

So, if you wish to try this plugin, backup your database before trying.

I rated the plugin 5 Stars and would use it again.

Great, al lot faster than going about it via CPanel!
Wish this plugin keeps updated for security reasons.

So far no issues even with 4.1

unless you have ONL

unless you have ONLY ONE WP installation on your database and nothing else!
This thing is crawling the whole database regardless of the tables origin!
So you are in danger of deleting tables belonging to a different application and not to your wordpress installation!
Really bad logic behind this plugin, very dangerous to use!

works great

If you have a backup go ahead and use this. I never had a problem, but then if I do, I can always go back to the way things were.
