WordPress Comments – Cleaned Out WP_Comments Table But Still Showing On Admin


I have used MySQL queries to remove 1000s of ramdom comments on my WordPress Blogs.

But when I go into the backend of WordPress and look at my list of Posts, it is still showing (comments column) the same number of comments as were there before I deleted any.

If I go to a post which shows 111 comments, for instance, and click to open list of comments there is only 1 there because I deleted the other 110.

So wp_comments & wp_commentmeta are correct but WordPress backend does not seem to know about the deletions.

What am I missing?
