Support » Fixing WordPress » WP automatic repair does not work

  • Resolved chrisfmasse



    My WP Options database have been emptied.


    I have manually updated to the new WP 3.1.1.

    When I attempted to enter admin, I got:
    “One or more database tables are unavailable. The database may need to be repaired.”

    “To allow use of this page to automatically repair database problems, please add the following line to your wp-config.php file. Once this line is added to your config, reload this page.
    define(‘WP_ALLOW_REPAIR’, true);”

    I did the config change, but reloading the webpage does nothing.

    Any idea?

    Thanks. I did a database REPAIR in phpMyAdmin, but to not avail.

    Do you have a recent database backup?


    Thanks for your presence.

    Yes, I have just realized that DreamHost does daily database backup (in addition to my own backup). I will restore.

    However, my accident shows that the WP automatic repair does not work as advertized, IMHO.

    Thanks so much for your kindness.

    I think there are limits to any database repair operation if the database is badly trashed.
