Support » Installing WordPress » Now what after WP database repair complete.

  • I received the notice while installing WP that the db needed repair. Did repair:

    The wp_users table is okay.

    The wp_usermeta table is okay.

    The wp_posts table is okay.

    The wp_comments table is okay.

    The wp_links table is okay.

    The wp_options table is okay.

    The wp_postmeta table is okay.

    The wp_terms table is okay.

    The wp_term_taxonomy table is okay.

    The wp_term_relationships table is okay.

    The wp_commentmeta table is okay.

    Repairs complete. Please remove the following line from wp-config.php to prevent this page from being used by unauthorized users.

    define(‘WP_ALLOW_REPAIR’, true);

    Now what? Repair page just sits there with no link.

  • You need to go in wp-config.php file and delete the line posted above else it keep on getting you repair your database now try and see if your wordpress is working

    Removed the repair line in config file but the repair page is still there. My question should be: Where do I go after that?

    post your url so that we can see what you have

    Can’t post the url. Behind firewall on dev server while we test WP.

    I can give you all the specs:

    Operating system:
    Linux version 2.6.18-238.19.1.el5 ( (gcc version 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-50))

    mysql version: 5.5.13
    database: wordpress
    char. set: latin1 — cp1252 West European
    collation: latin1_swedish_ci

    PHP 5.3.3 (cli) (built: Mar 30 2011 13:51:41)
    Copyright (c) 1997-2010 The PHP Group
    Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2010 Zend Technologies


    Anyway, got to the install.php and this is what happens:

    One or more database tables are unavailable. The database may need to be repaired.

    I click on repaired…

    I click on Repair Database link and there are no errors (see first post) and the output tells me to remove the define(‘WP_ALLOW_REPAIR’, true); line. I do and re-upload the wp_config.php file.

    What is supposed to happen next? The above page has no options after that. If I put in http://[mysite]/wordpress/ I get Error establishing a database connection. Seems I’m not going through all the step needed to install WP because I’m getting waylaid by the repair.php.

    p.s: I know the database works with the specs I put in wp-config.php file because I use the same servername/dbname/un/pw within a jsp page and can connect.

    Hope you can work with this. Without being able to direct you to the site, this must be difficult.

    If this a fresh install without any data then try reinstalling from scrach


    Tried fresh install and get to:

    Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system’s timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected ‘UTC’ for ‘UTC/0.0/no DST’ instead in /httpd/htdocs/www/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/schema.php on line 244 Fatal error: date(): Timezone database is corrupt – this should *never* happen! in /httpd/htdocs/www/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/schema.php on line 244
