My website hosting service had server problems yesterday and my wordpress installation (at http://callybooker.co.uk) was affected. I followed the instructions to add the repair command to my config file, but after running the repair I get the following residual errors:
wp_comments: 3 clients are using or haven’t closed the table properly
wp_options: Table is marked as crashed
wp_commentmeta: 3 clients are using or haven’t closed the table properly
As I received some new comments during the day yesterday, I’m guessing that these files were active when the server was unstable and have been corrupted as a result.
I am a very basic level user and have no idea what the implications are. I was suprised to be able to go to my most recent blog post and add a comment without any difficulty, for instance.
Is there something I can do to fix these files? Do they need further fixing?
– switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme’s folder inside wp-content/themes and adding “-old” to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.
