[MediaWiki-l] Question about deleteOldRevisions.php

Rowe (US), Dolores A
I'm trying to reduce the size of a large text table in one of our mediawikis.
I ran the maintenance script deleteOldRevisions.php, but after I was done the text table was still
the same size.

What am I misunderstanding regarding the procedure ?  What does this indicate ?
thanks,
Lori

IIRC deleted article revisions go into the archive table, so it's this
table that will have entries removed by the script. deleteOldRevisions
*will* reduce the size of your database (assuming there were any deleted
revisions to delete).

That script doesn’t delete deleted revisions. It deletes revision history.
I would look at your database to compact/release space that has been freed
