hello dear support team,

i'm runing into a problem where my site's backups keep getting larger & larger, to the point of 4.5GB - unproportional to the site's content.
when checking the backup files we located 1 of your (sh404SEF) DB tables - named url_src. this table gorws to the extent of 5GB.
can you pleas explain the meaning of this table and how to make it's size tollerable. does it relate to any conifguration in sh404SEF that i can change?

thank you

This is because you have enabled a debugging feature, and record a lot of details about each URL, each time they are displayed. This is a debug-only feature and should not be enabled on love site. That's why there's a big orange warning on your dashboard for instance.

Read the corresponding documentation page for disabling it.

There is no button to delete that data directly, as this is a debugging feature. You can manually empty the db table using PHPMyAdmin for instance or a similar tool. Don't delete the table, just empty it.
