Magento 1.5: Remove Order Status via Database?

Hi,

is it safe to remove Order Status via database? In our system there are several unused order states. Unfortunately I can’t remove them in the admin panel. The only way is directly in the database. Is this safe or will I kill my system with that operation?

Thanks for your help!

I would not recommend removing from database until you have a full understanding what the impact will be to the rest of the system.

#1 Test in Dev environment
#2 Try a number of scenarios after you have removed
#3 Make sure you check Foreign Keys as more rows could be deleted by cascading deletes
