My LUM_ShortStat has gone over my allotted 100MB of MYSQL database. What's in LUM_ShortStat? Can I clear it out with TRUNCATE 'LUM_ShortStat' ?


  • Well, I'm about to find out. I just backed it up. Here goes nothing.
  • I suggest you don't use the shortstats plugin for vanilla. It will do that, as it just keeps adding rows into the database. If you want analytics try using google analytics instead.
  • Oh... ok... is that all that is? I looked at the data and it looks like it's just IPs, browser names and such. I'm using analytics so I guess I can just turn off the shortstats somehow. Thanks!
  • Yeah its how the shortstats plugin stores the data. I suggest that you look into google analytics or some other offsite analytics. The services are more comprehensive, reliable and take up less resources then shortstats.
  • Does anyone know how to shut down the shortstats plugin? I don't see it. The forum was shut down again due to the shortstats size so, I'd like to turn it off. I use google analytics.
  • On you should be able to disable the extension.
  • Thanks Luc! I'm really rusty with making changes these days. That should stop my database from getting overloaded. Thanks again!
