    Hello ,

    I have a forum with :
    Discussions: 18,248

    The database size is 1.1 GB , in my opinion is too large .
    Also in latest months i have sent mass private messages , and i dont know how to
    empty the "inbox" of every user . How can i make that size of database small ? is any
    tabel of cache or something like that to empty ? Optimize or something..thanks .

    Why do you perceive the database to be too large?
    It won't specifically affect the operation of the forum.

    You could switch to Enhanced Search and then truncate the search index table.

    You can also limit how long IP addresses are stored and disable the bb code cache.

    Those few things would likely reduce it in size quite a lot, at the expense of not having a complete history of IP addresses.

    Click on the ACP search in the top right and enter 'bb code cache' and 'delete ip'.
