Dealing with a MySQL warning from my hosting provider

I got a warning email from my hosting company today

MySQL Quota DB: has used 136.87 MB out of 50 MB limit

After some research I discovered that 2 database tables used by Apocalypse Meow are using approx. 120MB.

I resolved the issue:

  1. Delete the data: open Apocalypse Meow settings page and click Purge ALL data
  2. Reclaim the disk space: open MySQL console and optimize tables
    • wp_meow_log
    • wp_meow_log_banned

The database is now using 18.55MB …..
