Support » Fixing WordPress » database tables missing

  • I went to repair the db (with wp_admin/maint/repair.php) and got:

    wp_users: Table ‘word_press.wp_users’ doesn’t exist
    wp_usermeta: Table ‘word_press.wp_usermeta’ doesn’t exist
    wp_posts: Table ‘word_press.wp_posts’ doesn’t exist
    wp_comments: Table ‘word_press.wp_comments’ doesn’t exist
    wp_links: Table ‘word_press.wp_links’ doesn’t exist
    wp_options: Table ‘word_press.wp_options’ doesn’t exist
    wp_postmeta: Table ‘word_press.wp_postmeta’ doesn’t exist
    wp_terms: Table ‘word_press.wp_terms’ doesn’t exist
    wp_term_taxonomy: Table ‘word_press.wp_term_taxonomy’ doesn’t exist
    wp_term_relationships: Table ‘word_press.wp_term_relationships’ doesn’t exist
    wp_commentmeta: Table ‘word_press.wp_commentmeta’ doesn’t exist

    I’m not sure why these tables are missing, but how can I get them back without a db backup file? Thanks.

    Ask your hosts if they have a database backup. Without that backup, you’re pretty much dead in the water. 🙁

    I pretty much knew this already.

    I have this installed on my own server.

    How can I preserve the current install (plugins, etc) when resetting up the current version?

    I don’t want to lose the work that I did already (I mean the current setup). I don’t care so much about posts, but I do care about the current theme and plugins.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    I think your best option would to take screenshots of any existing theme options pages and plugin configuration pages. That way, you will be able to set the theme and plugins back up again pretty quickly. Unfortunately, there’s no way to preserve any of these settings once you re-install WP.
