Changed hosts, User can't post! (4 posts)

    We changed hosts this week and once I installed WP on the new server and upped the sql backup we were on the run... minus one major problem: I am the only user that seems to be able to post! One of the other users tried to post a welcome back msg right after I did and he got the following error:

    WordPress database error: [Incorrect key file for table 'wp_posts'; try to repair it]
    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by
    (output started at
    /home/user/wp-includes/wp-db.php:98) in
    /home/user/wp-admin/post.php on line 397

    What the heck is this?

    The only thing I can think of is that the old site was 1.5, but I installed 1.5.1 on the new site, but used the old DB. Could this have messed things up?

    Did you run the upgrade.php?

    The error does suggest you "try to repair it". Have you? Run a SQL repair command on your database tables, that is.

    Most MySQL admin tools have a simple method for doing this, so check the one(s) your host provides.

    I ran upgrade.php and that seems to have fixed the keys. Thanks.
