My DB is bloated with statistics. It makes me lost time in backups and also makes impossible to restore directly (memory limits).

I have disabled the statistics from ContentController.php in sapphire bu how could I clean the recent records?
Please note that I'm not good at manual SQL operations :(
But if possible I can remove whole table if system creates again automaticly.

use phpmyadmin and delete some of the older entries SiteTree_Versions this is where the bulk of you're extra useless data is stored.

I think he's talking about the PageView table - you can simply drop this table, it will be created with the nexty db/build call. The statistics module will not be part of the 2.3 release, and is phased over into a separate module - so unless you need this functionality, you shouldnt have these problems with our upcoming release.

Already did it. Dropped the PageView and SiteTree_Versions tables and got about 50 MB.

But, I've patched my version to 223 but statistics still in package. Just want to ask, dosent matter anymore. I'll drop again :)

I was referring to the upcoming 2.3 release, not 2.2.3 :)
