DotNetNuke SQL Space and the Event Viewer

I’ve been meaning to address this topic for quite a while and now that I’m noticing a lot of my web hosting customers getting notifications about their plans using too much space, I think it may be time to address this topic.

When you initially install DotNetNuke, the default install has you logging EVERY event that ever happens into the database.  The problem with this is 1) you don’t need to log every event and 2) it never deletes the events.  So, your site continues to consume more and more database space.

This video shows you how to change those settings as well as one other place you may not be aware of that could be eating your space.
