In the process of migrating a wiki site to a new server, I noticed that the sql dum was 293M large, eventhough the site only contains a hundred pages or so. Looking at the dump, it seems most of that is action log data.
This seems a bit excessive to me. I was wondering if folks here have some thoughts about best practices to keep the action log under control?
- What would be the drawback of disabling the action log? Would I still be able to see recent changes, or know who did what to a page?
- Is there a way to tell Tiki to only keep say, the last 6 months of action log?
- It seems Tiki keeps a record of every page view. I'm not really interested in page view, but more in actions that actually change the content. I see that it's possible to disable only that part of the action log. Have people found this to reduce significantly the size of the log?
