Une vrai bénédiction

Ne manipulez jamais votre base de données avant d’en avoir fait une sauvegarde.

Cet outil est un pur bonheur, simple à utiliser, il m’a permis de diminuer ma base de 107 Mo à 10 Mo simplement en purgeant les révisions d’articles (méa culpa, je ne savais pas que c’était si gourmand).

Je recommande à 100%.

Tried all the rest, found the best!

Tried all the top, so-called, database cleaners! This one is thorough, uses WP delete functions and best of all it works! Turned my 655MB database into 28MB! Incredible. Let’s hope it stays clean.

Good plugin

Doesn’t seem to have broken any of our sites. Seems to speed up the backend and the front end.
