Database compaction is performed periodically on the site to reduce the size of the database. This removes page revisions and only the last revision of a page is stored in the database. In other words, after a database compaction, earlier revisions of pages cannot be accessed. The creation date of a page is also lost.

Past dates for database compaction
  • October 2012
  • August 2008
