CSV Import Data
I have noticed that the database table called, "_csv_import_data" has 36828 records. Can I safely empty this table via phpMyAdmin? It is taking up 1.6 MB of space. I notice I cannot remove the records via the cmsb admin area.
Yes, this is a temporary data table used during the import process. It should be safe to manually empty it, so long as there are no ongoing import jobs.
However, the CSV Import plugin should be clearing this table out automatically through regular usage. To trigger the automatic cleanup process, simply visit the "Import CSV File" page. If this doesn't work, you can also check the "Import Jobs >>" page to see if there are any old/stuck jobs; these can be deleted, and the cleanup process triggered again.
Let me know if you have any further questions!
Thank you for your message.
I visited the Import CSV File page and this did indeed remove the records from the database table so I can now see _csv_import_data (0) in the list of Section Editors. However the table size is still being displayed as 1.6MB. Do you know why this might be if there are no records in the table?
Thank you for your assistance.
