> Alright OSUOSS, does anyone know how to do anything about a MySQL database that's growing too big? I can't tell (though I have a pretty good idea) which tables are taking up the most disk space, and there may be a "clean up the files" command I'm missing. Thoughts? The database is only connected to Wordpress and Roundcube webmail, but it's using up 1.8 GB

Ok, well I usually would handle this by dumping it and cleaning out 
extraneous entries. and then reimporting it over the existing database.
