Hi,
Can anyone please help explain this? I have a table in my Opencart database called oc_bots_report

I have been trying to backup the database but it maxes out before it finishes because of how huge this table is. I am exporting the database without this table so I at least have a backup of everything else.

Do I need to keep this table? any ideas why it's there?

The columns are:
Link
Bot
IP
Date

examples:

https://www.MYDOMAIN (changed for sample)

This table originates from an installed extension. All extensions are running individually between each OC versions. If you need to make a backup of your database, you should normally be able to do so. However, you should contact the extension developer from where you originally downloaded this extension knowing the alternatives about this database table in particular.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

Hi,
Thanks I will take a look and install each extension on a fresh copy. I checked my backups and it does seem to show up at a certain point, just don't think I had any extensions installed around then. Surprised that it wouldn't auto flush or something as its bigger than my entire database. I wonder if anything is querying it and its slowing down my site.
