WP DB Booster


WP DB Booster will help you to clean up, optimize and analyze your WordPress database with few clicks.
You can clean up and optimize more than 20 various data types including orphan and duplicate metadata that can bloat your database.

If you edit your posts or pages WordPress creates revision each time you save the post or page.

What does that mean?
Let’s say your post is just 50KB in size. If you have 5 revisions for this post, they will occupy 250KB additional space in you DB.
And if you have 150 posts, it will be about 37MB of wasted space and duplicate information in your Database.
And what if you have thousands of spam or unapproved comments in your DB?

WP DB Booster can clean up all of these unwanted, obsolete or junk records with just a single click.

This one works! VeryGood! But it not have a simple cron schedule! why!! This plugin does with excellence everything else bigs and famous/papular plugins do not! for those who know to check if the operations are actually done after cleaning, will be disappointed with the other bigs plugins if it is checked, this plugin here really works, but something surprised me, the plugin does not have a cron! You can not schedule cleaning! for those who have little time, it is complicated to have to enter the dashboard just to do this cleaning, there are projects that walk alone and do not need to be present at the dashboard. I’m waiting for you to add cron schedule to this wonderful plugin. I’m looking forward to raising this review to 5 stars.
