  • can I delete searchindex.myi and myd?

    My forum has outgrown the drive it's on and until I get it onto a new one I've suspended searches and I'm wondering if I can safely delete the two search index files, which are huge and would buy me some time.

    Don't delete those files. The safest way to do this is to empty the search index. There is an option to do this in the Update Counters section of the Admin CP.
