I have an offline WordPress installation I am using to explore WordPress and its tools, and have constructed a simple site.

This is off-line and not accessible from the internet.

I had dumped the database to an sql file from Mariadb using mysqldump and was surprised by the size (>400k) given the sparse content.

A lot of this seem to be webpages e.g. https://wptavern.com/wpml-website-hacked-customer-emails-compromised which seems to be a rant about a hacked site.

My question is Why is this in my database dump? Where is it stored?

  • And you're already using --skip-comments and --compact, I trust? – 0xC0000022L Oct 15 at 21:50
