While attempting to do some database maintenance, I accidentally deleted the entire comments table. And no, I don't have any backups; I was getting ready to do my first when I clicked on the wrong thing. I don't care about losing the past comments; they were 99% spam anyway. But I now have error messages on most of my pages, because WordPress can't find "wp-comments".
Any advice, short of doing a complete re-install? If I do have to reinstall, how can avoid overwriting everything I've already done? Any good suggestions, would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
