WordPress Database – Delete Orphaned Usermeta

Delete Orphaned Usermeta.. After using SQL to bulk-delete users, you’ll be left with (potentially a lot) of orphaned records in the “usermeta” table. You don’t want that.

WordPress Multisite Problems

We’re currently working on a Multisite WordPress Installation for an educational establishment. The problem is that the server is accessed via a proxy on their main domain.
