XF 1.1 Database post import from vB 4

    Just took a look at my database to famiarise myself with the structure of it, work out how to update my feeds, etc, and saw that my db size was about twice as big as I had expected it to be.

    I took a look at the database itself and noticed that it appears that the Xenforo templates are prefaced "xf". After backing up the database, should it be safe to delete any non-"xf" prefaced tables?

    Yes, but XenForo addons don't always use that prefix. If you have any addons installed then be mindful of that.

    It is normal for XenForo's database to be larger than your vB database after an import. This is mostly due to XenForo's search index. XenForo duplicates each post in the database for the purpose of the search index. vB does not.

    Fairly new install with no add-ons at present, so it looks safe to delete them. Will report back for the benefit of others if I hit any problems.
