My webhost recently had some trouble with
No space left on device''--you know how it goes. Figuring that it might be an issue with an unoptimized comments table, I attempted to optimize the comments, but it appears to have deleted the entire table. Here's the error:
WordPress database error: [Can't open file: 'wp_comments.MYD'. (errno: 144)]
I don't need the comments back, and I do have a very stale backup, but I would like to be able to have a comments database.
