    Help please!
    I was looking at the database (through MySQLAdmin) to learn something, when i accidentally pressed a "T" button when viewing a table (comment_content). I think that altered something, as the MySQLAdmin interface replied this:

    One index was added to comment_content (0 queries o.1038 seconds)
    SQL command:
    ALTER TABLE wp_comments ADD FULLTEXT (

    Have i broken something? How can undo this? I am afraid this will bring doom in future upgrade to WP or something. And yes, i have a backup, but it is a little old, i will loose a lot of comments and a few posts if i restore it (i know, iknow...).

    Me no expert.

    Adding something is never as bad as removing, and WP will not use a table that it's not meant to.
    If this were mine, I'd backup.
    Then try to delete that index
    If I were cautious, I'd leave alone and tell myself to never use my real db for anything :)

    I think you'll be fine.
