Home > Store Management > Monthly Maintenance
From the Configuration menu, click Monthly Maintenance.
Despite its name, for security reasons we recommend that this maintenance is run as frequently as possible to keep your database free of 'at-risk' data.
From this page, store admins can run periodic maintenance which is necessary for keeping the store running smoothly and quickly. For many tasks, store admins can choose whether to do that maintenance for all records, no records, or only records older than n days old. Multiple actions can be performed at once. This maintenance process should be executed during off-peak hours, as various parts of the database may be temporarily locked during maintenance, preventing customers from using the site normally.
These tasks can take a while to complete, especially if the gap between occurrences is large. Once you click Go to start the process, do not interact with the admin site until you see the completed message. All currently logged-in admin users will be logged out.
