Best way to cleanse DB of deleted values?

  • Hi. While evolving the custom field structure, we invariably change fields, remove some old field types, etc. But I notice that any data from those fields remains in the DB.

    Is there a sensible way to “clean up” and delete all that old expired content from the DB?

    Thanks for any pointers if this is already in the documentation. I didn’t have the vocabulary to search for it.

  • This has been discussed here many time, unfortunately there isn’t a 100% way to remove the data easily. I wold suggest reading some of the other discussions rather than go over it again https://www.google.com/search?q=acf+remove+unused+data+from+db+site:support.advancedcustomfields.com
