    Let’s say I get 1000 people signed up as members on my site, where exactly is all their basic contact and profile info stored?

    I’m building a community database of farmers and want to be able to reference each member at anytime and without fear of loosing all that information. So where exactly is all that content stored and is it secure?

    Thanks for any light shed on this for me.

    All user data is stored in the WordPress users and usermeta table in the core database. It is secure and will remain even if you deactivate bbPress.

    Awesome thank you for that. One last thing. Where can I find that usermeta table? Where exactly is the core database located? Would it be on my host’s server?

    Thanks again

    The usermeta table is one of the core WordPress tables, so usually it will be the one that looks like this: wp_usermeta. Sometimes, however, the “wp_” prefix will be different.

    Thanks Pippin. And that table is stored in a folder on the host server, correct?

    Where else would it be? 🙂
