Remove all the ShortPixel related data on a WordPress website
If you used the ShortPixel Image Optimizer plugin on your website and you would like to remove all the data related to it here's what you need to do:
- (Optional) Before deactivating the plugin, go to Media > Bulk ShortPixel, click on "Bulk Restore Images" to restore your optimized images to the originals and follow the instructions.
- Before deactivating the plugin, go to Media > Bulk ShortPixel, click on "Bulk Delete SP Metadata" and follow the instructions.
- Remove the ShortPixel backups folder located at "/wp-content/uploads/ShortpixelBackups/".
- Deactivate and uninstall the ShortPixel Image Optimizer plugin making sure that you uncheck the option "Keep the ShortPixel settings on plugin deletion"
Remove the tables "shortpixel_meta" and "shortpixel_folders" from the database (if relevant). Those tables contain your additional media folders settings (Settings > ShortPixel > Advanced).
