Database Cleaner


Clean your WordPress database. This plugin is simple, handles risk levels, and aims to work even on oversized databases on which other plugins fail to operate.


This plugin does its best to remain safe, but… do not use this plugin if you don’t have a recent backup, or if you don’t understand what it does! This plugin does its best to help you. Learn how to use it and you will get awesome results 🙂


There are many ways to use this plugin, but here is my recommendation:

  • Check each tab, and adjust the risk for each item. Defaults are normally fine, but you might want to lower the risk for the Post Types you don’t need. Some plugins are using Post Types to log data, for example, and lowering the risk will authorize Database Cleaner to purge this.
  • Check the Risk Treshold (Low is recommended).
  • Click on Clean DB every once in a while! It will clean all the items with a risk equal or below to your Risk Threshold.


Please be kind to use, we just released this plugin 🙂 We would like your feedback and make sure it works well for everyone. This plugin will focus on being fast and work on databases which are not handled by other plugins (which is also why this plugin was created at the first place). It will be tested regularly on huge installs in order to be optimized and its process improved. The UI will change a lot, will be simplified for common operations, while more complex features and options will be added on the side.


  1. Upload the plugin to WordPress.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to Meow Apps -> DB Cleaner in the sidebar and check the appropriate options.
  4. Click on the button to clean your database automatically.
