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.
I’ve taken note of the concerns raised by other users/reviewers. In my case, though, it worked just find to get rid of tables relating to plugins I had deleted and which didn’t clean up after themselves.
The fact that it was last updated more than a year ago is a concern.
I have used other cleanup plugins in the past and was very hesitant, but decided to try this on one of my test sites. We install and deinstall many different plugins every month for testing purposes, so there are definitely leftovers to be removed. To be safe, I made a database backup before using the plugin.
After running the search function, the plugin found 152 leftover tables unrelated to current plugins. I deleted them using the plugin. I then used the optimize feature as well. OMG! My test site has not worked this fast since I originally installed it!
Afterwards, I tested every current plugin we have installed and are using, along with creating a new page and new post. No problems whatsoever.
I do recommend WPDBSpringClean.
AT LAST a plugin that can clean up my database after tests plugins sessions :P
A MUST HAVE !!
Makes cleaning up old tables in the database so easy & fast! A great plugin!
Does what it says on the tin !
I need to say that this is the best and easyiest way to clean your WP data base from so many bad written plugins that leave their junk uin db after you uninstall them.
It works great with 3.9.1
But still caution is advised and if you are not familiar with editing your db do read it carefully and don't delete everything that this plugin offers...
Great work dev.!
do not use 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!
on my site, the search process is endless! something wrong?
