Latest News: Updated the documentation.

The list of plugins in this post will help you optimize your database and improve the performance of your website. As a general rule you should always have a current backup of your database just in case something happens while optimizing your database. However I have tested both plugins and I can safely say that they do a great job optimizing the database and so far I have not had any issues.

Information: Always remember to try and not have too many plugins added to your website or blog. The more plugins you add the more request and processing resources it requires to use from your server!!!
