Optimize Your WordPress Database
When it comes to WordPress, it’s interface, and blogging in general, I love it. I write a lot, and when you log as many hours writing as I do, you really begin to appreciate the time saving qualities of the WordPress platform. With that being said, anything that you work this hard has to be taken care of. The way that I am used to writing my posts is directly inside of the WordPress interface. I can put in links right there, and I can preview how everything will look before I post it. After a while, WordPress needs to be optimized. If you want your database to stay healthy, you’re going to want to know how to optimize your WordPress database.
Why You Should Optimize Your WordPress Database
Why would you want to do this? Well, the more junk on your database, the harder it has to work. The harder it works, the more resources it will take up to handle all of it. Why not just get rid of it all? If you’re like me, messing with your database can be scary. You delete the wrong table, and everything will break. Even if you know what you’re doing, going in and deleting each redundant post draft manually could take hours. That’s where the awesome plugin WP-DBManager comes in. I dont really have to think about it. I can just go in and click optimize, and the plugin takes care of everything for me. In the video above, You’ll see how WP-DBManager works.
