Repairing WordPress database crush!

This week I wanted to edit a post. When I clicked on the update button, …. A problem: all the posts and pages and comments were gone.  Just like that. I went into the PHPmyadmin section of the control panel to look at the database and here’s the error I found:

“wp_posts” is marked as crashed and should be repaired.

I can’t tell you how frightened I was. All my posts gone. To make the matter worse the only backup I had was 3 months old!

Fortunately, a search on the internet helped me fix the problem. Here is how I fixed it:

  • Go to in PHPmyadmin,
  • click the check box next to the corrupted table (for example, wp_posts).
  • The table will probably say “in use”.
  • Use the dropdown menu at the bottom to select “repair table”.
  • That’s it.

Of course, the ideal thing is to have backups now and then. This will help you reinstall your tables when a problem occurs.
