[MediaWiki-l] Database exceeds size limit

I would actually consider using another host -- one that would have
the decency to make an exception and let your DB go past 1 GB for just
one day so that you could reduce its size.

Beyond that, however, you could consider exporting some data in SQL
format, like the user table, for example, and then deleting all users
except yours. Then you make your fixes and then after, you restore
that table.

Another idea would be to empty the other tables that end in "cache" as
that should generally be safe.
