Pepper to tidy up the database?

Is there any pepper or a function to tidy up the database or the tables created by mint? I’m using mint since three or four weeks and my DB is big as it was never before. ;)

Good to have a function like “Erase the x-oldest weeks” or something like that.

Any hints?

Best Martin

Visit http://yourdomain.com/mint/?preferences&advanced

See the Mint Database section at the bottom left.

Oh thanks. This advanced preferences i’ve never seen before. (may i? is it “official”??)

I’ve been looking for something like this. Thanks Sam.

Mint has always had this feature. It was out in the open in earlier versions of Mint but hidden behind the advanced query command for Mint 2 because it is so often mis-configured—usually to the detriment of the Mint installation.

It’s official (as far as I know), just hidden to prevent people who don’t know what they’re doing from messing with it.

Edit: Shaun beat me to it.

Does this function keep the total visitors of previous months/years?

Yes, that data is stored separately.
