Plugins Garbage Collector (Database Cleanup)


El plugin de limpieza de la base de datos explora la base de datos y muestra las tablas más allá del núcleo de la instalación de WordPress. Algunos plugins de WordPress crean y usan sus propias tablas de base de datos.
Esas tablas a menudo se dejan en tu base de datos después de desactivar y borrar el plugin.
Con la ayuda de este plugin, puedes comprobar tu base de datos y descubrir si está limpia o no.
También se podrían mostrar columnas adicionales añadidas a las tablas del núcleo de WordPress.

TYVM for making this. I have wanted something like this forever. No more manual deleting junk using phpmyadmin. Simple, eloquent, and highly useful plugin that will help you identify junk and leftover tables in your database. It should be part of the core. I also use this author's "User Role Editor" (pro version) for years. Outstanding support any time time I needed his help. I highly recommend him and his plugins.

I found database table entries from plugins I removed years ago! I forgot I even installed them to begin with. Cleaned up a lot of junk. Just what I needed.

First I duplicated a website, then I installed plugins, then uninstalled them again etc. This to see why and which extra tables were added to the WordPress database. After that I uninstalled several plugins and finally tested this plugin. And indeed, this plugin found the remaining tables that I no longer need. That works perfectly for me! That is an indispensable plugin to keep WordPress in perfect condition! 🙂 I couldn't find a better one. 😉

Hi Love this plugin but foreign-key constraints errors reduce its effectiveness for completing the whole job. If your prepared do the actual deletions yourself in phpMyAdmin (or similar) then this is a superb way of finding and highlighting the unwanted 'garbage tables' slowing down your installation. Please see my suggestion in this plugins forum: here. I, and i believe, many other who've encountered this would give this worthy plugin 5 big fat, in-your-face stars if all deletions on large DBs'/MultiSites were possible without hitch. Please take this as constructive, honest appraisal - nice work

0.12 [16.08.2020]

  • Update: Server side «Fatal error: Maximum execution time of NN seconds exceeded» should not take place now. PGC scans plugins with large quantity of files by splitting job to smaller parts per 500 files.
  • Update: «foreign key constraint fails» error should not prevent database table deletion. PGC temporally switches off «foreign keys constraints checking».
  • Fix: Known database tables with DB prefix ‘wp_’ inside name (like wp_pro_quiz_question from LearnDash LMS) were not recognized. Code had used str_replace( $db_prefix, », $table_name ) to exclude DB prefix from the table name and broke the name itself.

0.11.1 [23.06.2020]

  • Fix: Checkbox to mark table for deletion was not shown, if table belongs to the known, but unused (uninstalled) plugin.
  • Fix: Plugin state translation is made now exactly before output, to use its value in the code logic safely.

0.11. [19.06.2020]

  • New: «Tools->Plugins Garbage Collector» menu item was renamed to «Tools->Database Cleanup»
  • New: Multisite support was added. It’s safe to use PGC at the single sites of the WordPress multisite network.
  • New: PGC uses the list of known database tables and list of plugins which do not create own database tables.
    This reduces files scanning time as plugins known for PGC are not scanned for database tables usage. PGC checks these lists updates once a day. There is an intent to extend/update known plugins list on the regular base.
  • New: It’s possible to hide (temporally exclude from the listing) any found database table. Earlier this feature was available only for the tables belong to the active plugins. You can use this feature to hide the tables which are known for you, but are not recognized by PGC. Thanks for reporting such cases.
  • Update: Call to deprecated function mysql_get_server_info() was excluded.
  • Update: PGC shows database tables in the original format, without converting them all to lowercase letters.
  • Fix: Last item in the installed plugins list ( item C in the list (A, B, C) ) was never scanned for database tables. Db tables created by such plugin were always shown as belong to unknown plugin.
