  • Resolved perrydmyers


    I host my blog and have an ecommerce website on Yahoo Business. Today, I noticed all my blog posts gone. My new web developer who is rebuilding the sites design and layout has been working for about a month and does not have access to my blog admin as of yet. I also have someone who is actively posting blogs for me and has been an administrator for about 8 months without issues. I am trying to troubleshoot but keep getting an error message in the admin side: One or more database tables are unavailable. The database may need to be repaired.
    Is there a recommendation anyone can make? Should I have Yahoo revert or is it possible? Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    Access your WordPress database via phpMyAdmin (most hosting providers offer this in their control panel), check all of the tables, and choose “Repair tables” from the pull-down menu.

    Thank you macmanx. Things are now resolved and everything is back to normal with the exception of my heart which is starting to slow to a normal beat. I appreciate your advice!
