  • Trying to delete lots of users (timing out)...

    I'm trying to prune a few thousand users via the admin page. I select my users, I click delete, and it eventually just hangs. I get...

    Deleting forum subscriptions .... okay.

    Deleting thread subscriptions .... okay.

    Deleting calendar events .... okay.

    Deleting custom avatars .... okay.

    Deleting forum access .... okay.

    Deleting moderators .... okay.

    Deleting private messages .... okay.

    Deleting any activations .... okay.

    Deleting user sessions .... okay.

    Now proceding to update threads & posts ....
    very quickly but lose it after that. I'm guessing it just times out? Is there another way to delete this many users at once?

    How long did you wait? This may take quite a while to delete all the user and posts and make all the necessary changes to the database.

      Basically I let it sit until the web browser no longer shows it's loading. No error or timeout messages shown. The main frame refreshes after some time, the browser still continues to do it's "Loading..." thing, and then eventually it just stops, with no message about anything completed. I go back and do the same query and get the same users, not deleted or gone.
