I’m a WP noobie and got an error on my first site. I installed a bunch of security plugins namely Bulletproof .46.8, Login lockdown 1.5, secure wordpress 2.0.7 and Aksimet 2.5.3 on my localhost but installed via the internet. After changing my user info (admin), I logged into the system and got an error message that my database was messed up. I added in define(‘WP_ALLOW_REPAIR’, true);
The KD2_1_options table is not okay. It is reporting the following error: Table is marked as crashed. WordPress will attempt to repair this table…
Failed to repair the KD2_1_options table. Error: Table is marked as crashed
After refreshing the site and admin end, it ran fine… but I’m kind of security concious incase it happens again. Can anyone help on how to fix it?
You should be able to repair it in phpMyAdmin. Log into phpMyAdmin, click on your database. Select the table that is crashed. Underneath, there is a drop down options box that says “With selected:” Choose Repair Table.
