after trying to use content staging websites to no success and finding them buggy, we removed them.
I've noticed in the database, there are a lot of tables prefixed with s_ . I believe these tables were created when we creating new staging or store sites called Staging.
They are taking up a lot of room. Our DB is about 8GB and without the extra tables, it would be a bit under 2GB.
Is it safe to just go into phpMyAdmin and drop the tables?
I have tried this on a development server and everything seems ok but I am wondering if there are any gotchas I am not uncovering before I do it to the production database.
