Support » Installing WordPress » Errorcode 9 on install

  • Hello,

    While installing wordpress for the first time on step 2 I get many messages like this:

    WordPress database error: [File ‘./wordpress/wp_categories.MYD’ not found (Errcode: 9)]
    DESCRIBE wp_categories;

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/wordpress/wp-admin/upgrade-functions.php on line 530

    same error for wp_categories.MYD wp_comments.MYD wp_comments.MYD wp_links.MYD wp_links.MYD wp_post2cat.MYD wp_post2cat.MYD wp_postmeta.MYD wp_postmeta.MYD wp_posts.MYD wp_posts.MYD wp_usermeta.MYD… etc.

    What are those files?

    Why are they missing since I just have dowloaded the latest tar.gz from

    I have also tryed the .zip archive but I get the same errors…

    I can’t go further: I can’t login even if I get the email “Your new WordPress blog has been successfully set up”.

    Does anyone can help?

    That’s a host problem – only they can fix it. It’s easy for them to do that though 🙂

    Hello Podz,

    What do you mean by a host problem?

    Should I wait for the next version so they add the missing files in the archive?
