  • empty SEARCH table?

    I was just wondering, do we need to keep the content of SEARCH and SEARCHINDEX tables? As I understood, they are only used when search is performed. Am I correct? Could I empty the contents of both? They are really big..

    thanks

    You need the searchindex table in order to conduct any searches. If you empty it, you will effectively keep people from being able to search your forums.

    As for the search table, I'm not sure if it has any long-term value.

        The search table can safely be excluded from backups.
