mySQL database size getting large

rick85251 1 year ago in Website / Databases 0
Is it possible to have too large of a mySQL database. I have a website with 120 pages. The mySQL database is 5853.01 MB. Is this too large? If it is too large how would I reduce it?
I have redesigned the site a few times over the years and there may be junk in the database. I am unsure how to cleanup a database. Guidance and best practice is appreciated.
Thank you,

Piwik autoupdate not working

InMotionFans 3 years ago in Website / Databases 0
Hi there,
on my site, Piwik has been installed using softaculous. Worked great.
Now when I use the auto-update-function in the Piwik UI, I only get an error page (xxx for privacy)
that says
"Mysqli prepare error: MySQL server has gone away"
That's not an error I have seen before in my other Piwik installations.
Is there a hint what I can do? To me it sounds as if the system doesn't get hold of the db server quickly enought.
Thank you!

Moving MySQL Data Directory

stsIT 3 years ago in Website / Databases 0
In short, I need to quickly create a temporary table of about 500,000+ rows and insert a single character in a new column after all the other columns (regardless of how many there are) and then "select * into outfile" in a data directory in which the user can access. What directory should I write to (the MySQL Data directory? The tmp directory? a separate directory?) and how should I give the correct permissions so that I do not receive a "do not have permissions" error?
