Release Physical Disk Space After Deleting MySql Table

(update on March 04, 2016) Our WordPress blog sites got countless junk comments often. The big amount of junk comments were saved by WordPress into database automatically and caused MySql data tables large sized.

We could delete junk comments manually, or we install some plugins to help us, for example the plugin Akismet can protect our site from spam. It is a default and recommended plugin in newer edition of WordPress. However, no matter which way, if you set you will review all comments manually, the junk comments will still occupy your database space, your data tables are still huge.

Pictures Cannot be Published to WordPress using Windows Live Writer

We tried to upload an article to remote website with some pictures in the content. The article edited in Windows Live Writer. The website is a WordPress site and the version is 3.1.3.

However, we got an popup error message windows indicates Picture Upload Not Support By Blog as title and pictures can not be published.

The error windows also provides solution: Windows Live Writer can be configured to publish pictures to an FTP account. Do you want to configure an FTP account for picture publishing now?upImgFailed00

Actually, This issue is not about any FTP stuff. It is because some settings on your WordPress blog are not correct.

Login to your admin control dashboard. Go to “Settings”, click “Media”, we found we put a Store uploads folder for uploading files. actually, we should not input anything here, because the default folder works always well, it is wp-content/uploads.

upImgFailed01

So the solution is just remove the folder setting so that let the blog uses default folder.
