I have been doing some cleaning up in the database of one of my WordPress installs, and I noticed that the
wp_options table was about 2.1mb, and had 1200 rows. I've gotten it down to around 800 rows, and 1.2mb. However, there are a bunch of transients.
Should I remove these? I know they don't autoload, so it probably isn't causing strain on the database.
Most of the transients have formatting like the following:
_site_transient_browser_03df11ec4fda7630a5... _site_transient_browser_065e09a1287aadfb4d... _site_transient_timeout_browser_03df11ec4f... _site_transient_timeout_browser_065e09a128... _transient_feed_1a5f760f2e2b48827d4974a608... _transient_feed_f8e8c12cc5c787789728d7481a... _transient_feed_mod_e6460a14e5784b3ee64f91... _transient_timeout_feed_1a5f760f2e2b48827d...
So, is it worth taking the time to remove these?
Thanks for reading! Any thoughts are appreciated.
