XF 1.1 Database size twice what vb one was?


Active member
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 :)

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).
