I have Joomla 1.5 and Virtuemar 1.1.9 and sh404sef 2.4.6

I jos:redirection i have around 140 000 recorids, but I only have 5000 products

How can I reduce number of items? Can you provide me sql query?

I'm afraid this is not something we can provide an SQL for. I have no idea what sort of records are in the database, those would be VM URLs probably, in a very old format, and of course such an old sh404SEF version is totally unsupported, even for our actual customers.

It's going to be terribly complicated to find which URLs are needed and which are not, assuming some are not: it's not because you 5000 products that you should have 5000 URLs. There are multiple URLs per products, plus all the categories pages, etc

Do you think something like this should work?

[code type="markup"]delete from jos_redirection where cpt = 0[/code]

My understanding it that it remove all pages which were never visited

That's possible, I really don't know. You should first:

- check that the most common URLs have a valid "cpt" fields, ie you are not going to delete ALL your URLs
- do this on a test copy of the site, not the real one.

How it is possible that you dont know?

You are not author?

Yes, I am, I created it in 2006 and developed it since then. Do you think I remember every bit of detail of software that was released 7 or 8 years ago?
Even if you were a paying customer, which you are not, and even if this was a recent, supported version of sh404SEF, which it is not, what you are asking is way out of paying support limits. I am just trying to provide some general advice, but if you want to directly write or delete things in the database of a software that old, this is not something we can help you with. This topic is now closed for us, hope you can achieve what you want. Just be aware to test it all on a copy of your site before doing it on the real site.

jos_redirection is table with 6 columns so it should not be hard to remember

I have another question. I have many entries where newurl is empty in db, what does it mean ? why it is empty?
