Table not deleted after field deletion


Recommended Posts

Why is the corresponding table not automatically deleted by ProcessWire after a field is deleted in the admin panel?

Now I have numerous "dead" tables of no longer existing fields in the database of my ProcessWire installation.

Or is there a configuration that I have missed?

Thanks for your support.

2 years later I retested the case and still: The table of a field in the database does not get deleted.
Why? And is there a clean up function?

I've created a text field called "test", executed a few manipulations (added to template, saved text, etc.) and then I deleted it later on. But the table "field_test" ist still in the database.
