[resolved] "Error establishing a database connection" after using Garbage Collector (5 posts)

    I have a multisite installation with 2 subdomains. Now one subdomain delivers above error message when clicking on any link on the home page of this subdomain http://tours.irinaafrica.com/
    The home page looks almost right and the other domains are ok. When I try to visit the dashboard of the subdomain I am landing on the main site. I also notice that the title of the the broken subdomain disappeared and instead it shows only the url of the subdomain.
    I got now a response when clicking on repair DB, but it couldnt be repaired:

    wp_2_posts: Table 'irinaafr_wrdp1.wp_2_posts' doesn't exist
    wp_2_options: Table 'irinaafr_wrdp1.wp_2_options' doesn't exist
    wp_2_postmeta: Table 'irinaafr_wrdp1.wp_2_postmeta' doesn't exist
    Is there any other fix than restore possible?
    Thanks for any hints how to fix the problem.

  2. Do those tables exist in the DB?

    If so, try to run a repair via PHPMyAdmin.

    Thanks, no apparently they dont exist.

  4. Sounds like the account you're using in SQL doesn't have full access to create tables. Verify that it does (and get your host to help if you're not sure how).
