How to optimize or repair a Drupal database?

In this section we are going to show how to optimize a high performing Drupal database website and also, we going to check on how to repair or recover the damaged MySQL database tables.

For MySQL DB administration on Windows & Linux, most of the professional programmers use phpMyAdmin. And the developer will launch MySQL repair, optimization scripts and diagnostics for Drupal 8, once installed the database maintenance and Optimize Database modules.

Feature of Module OptimizeDB:
  • Performing repair and checking operations with tables
  • Preventing crashed tables while performing actions on all maintained.
  • Notification configuration on maintenance tasks that needs performance
  • Ability on optimizing the database tables and displaying their sizes
  • Ability on cleaning cache_from doing by its cron or in the administration page.
Some Additional Features of OptimizeDB:
  • Executing operations with Drush
  • Working with PgSQL& MySQL
Steps to process on OptimizeDB:

Step 1:
Installation of Drupal 8 DB repair modules – it provides the administrator with the ability to run comments on phpMyAdmin commands using CMS instead of web services. The required files to download.
  • DB Maintenance Module
  • OptimizeDB Module
  • Using FTP, Drush, Composer or Drupal 8 administration as per the user preference. And then process the installation.
  • Next, we need to upload CMS with the file.
  • When the installation is completed, we need to enable both the modules using admin/modules. Save it and complete the installation.
  • Once these (DB Maintenance Module &OptimizeDB Module) installations have been completed, we can use the Drupal 8 website regularly to repair tables, debug issues or diagnose problems.
Step 2: Repairing and running diagnostic Database Maintenance – DB Maintenance module used to analyse Drupal 8 database by processing deleted files, splits, errors and repairing them automatically, which works by running cron.
  • Choose “daily” for timetable operation and “Optimize all table” need to be selected. Save for configuring the module.
  • “Optimize Now” is used to optimize the database immediately and wait until the completion to receive a message on the operation.
Step 3: Running Repair and Diagnostics OptimizeDB – OptimizeDB is one of the advanced MySQL DB management of Drupal 8.
  • Firstly navigating to /admin/config/development/optimizeddb is must to optimizeDB.
  • Now the” Optimize tables” command is executed by the administrator of Drupal 8. Or we can also set notifications on the database while the repair is required or an error occurs.
  • It contains a link for viewing the tables which are all installed on the Drupal 8 website. This process is helpful for a programmer to develop, debug and program.
Step 4: Checking and repairing Tables using OptimizeDB – OptimizeDB is used to repair and diagnose the PgSQL or MySQL on Drupal 8 in an advanced manner.
  • Use the OptimizeDB option which is present at the next tab for performing the high-level repair & diagnosis tables.
  • The administrator can select manually every table in Drupal 8 DB and then repairing, checking and optimizing the table can be performed.
Ø Navigate to: /admin/config/development/optimizedb/list_tables show the complete size of tables in MB for programmers at Drupal platform.

Step 5: Using phpMyAdmin Tools for the status of MySQL – phpMyAdmin or phpPgAdmin is another tool that is used to optimize the database.
  • Click on the cPanel icon to launch the app and select Drupal 8 DB from MySQL installation, once the phpMyAdmin has been logged in.
  • Move to the “Status” tab under phpMyAdmin, the administrator can access information on real-time data transfer, errors, and connections in operations.
  • The diagnostics or repair for MySQL DB under the tools provided by PHPMyAdmin gives many errors which are needed to be corrected.
At last, the combination of OptimizeDB and DB Maintenance module for Drupal 8 that is analytic, material and diagnostic tools excellent in PHPMyAdmin. DB Maintenance module schedules continuously repair and monitor the Drupal 8. And OptimizeDB provides repair and check on MySQL tables. Whereas phpMyAdmin suits MySQL in real-time for Drupal 8 but it can only be accessed by cPanel or web service.
