A system level plugin for Joomla v1.7, v2.5 and now v3.x that once a day optimizes your database's tables so as to keep your site running at its peek performance by getting rid of the MySQL database overhead.
This has only been tested on Joomla v1.7 and up.
v1.0: Initial Release.
v1.1: Bug fix - thanks to Ebo Eppenga
v1.2: tested on Joomla 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2
P.S.: If you are going to rate the plugin, please comment or contact me [firstname.lastname@example.org] if you're having issues with it. [Someone rated it 1 out of 5 without any comments/review and without getting in contact with me so I couldn't help them :( ].
Credit: This is based on work by Joomlaportal.ru and their Joomla v1.5 plugin which they no longer maintain.
Throughout the code there are commented blocks to show the list of tables being optimized. These should be set as a param in the plugin to turn them on and off...instead of needing to change the plugin code directly.
I do not why and how the plugin redirected the website to other site not linked to it.
It is not recommended for newbies or administrators without access to server.
Interesting (negative) side effect that I did not encounter while testing on any of the servers? are you on shared hosting ? do you have multiple databases setup associated with this domain?
I'm trying to understand what caused this so that I can alter the plugin to have this behavior not be an issue...
Please update me via the email address posted above.
