    Try manually repairing the database. Access your WordPress database via phpMyAdmin, check the table(s), and choose "Repair tables" from the pull-down menu.

    - Always backup everything (including your database).

    Rarely. Most often database tables crash because of how you use (or wrongly use) phpMyAdmin (the tool/software that you use to manipulate database), database server configurations, external scripts, and possibly some plugins and themes.

    So i can't really figure out what causes the crash right?

    You could possibly check server and MySQL log files and see if something shows up there that might help track down what's causing this issue.

    That's correct. As bemdesign pointed out you can check your logs but it's almost certainly (99.44% sure) it's not a WordPress core issue.
