XF 1.1 Database size twice what vb one was?

    Hello all,

    Not a major issue, but after I imported my vb4 forums to xenforo, I noticed that the xenforo db size is double what the vb4 one was.

    Is that just the way it is, or do I need to do something to the db now what I have my forums all imported and up and running?

    Any thoughts appreciated :)

    It's probably the search index. XF duplicates post records in the database for the search engine, unlike vB.

    Mine doubled too. There was a thread about this a while ago. There are no problems as such, other than from having a database twice the size (double the storage for backups, double the time for backups, possibly hitting limits with shared hosting etc).
