made my "text" table explode, its size is now 170 MB,

But the spam rows are still in the "text" table. Is it safe to delete
I'm using Mediawiki 1.12.0.
Just run deleteArchivedRevisions.php from maintenance folder.
As always, make a backup first.
So, first I tried
but I've got an mysql error 1064 (syntax error). Then, I tried
which worked but didn't change the size of the "text" table. Again, I tried
which now worked without an error. Finally, I had to optimize the
table in phpMyAdmin to actually make it smaller.
Thanks for your advices!
