Problem deleting categories


Recommended Posts


I have a problem and need some help.

I have discovered that I have some categories which does not show up in back office but I see them in prestatools and also in the database.

These are old categories which I don't use any more and they contain some products which I also not use any more.  These are leftovers from earlier installations I think.

The problem is that I want to delete all of those since they use space in my database and I have seen some other problems too, but how can I delete the categories when I don't see them in Prestashop's back office ?

Any help I appreciate.

Using version

Directly in your database ps_category table. Be very carefull with this option. After delete category I recommend you to use ps_cleaner module to check integrity constraits and clean your database even more.
