So I just recently had my dedi recut as I was moving from using Windows 2008 R2 w/ a custom webserver I was running to now using Ubuntu Server w/ Plesk.

Not sure if it makes any difference that I was previously using MariaDB and now just using regular mysql or if it might be something else but when you try to visit the site it just says "An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later."

I am getting these errors after importing my database:


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The three XF tables are MEMORY (I suspect the add-on table is too) so you can't check those tables - http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/mysqlcheck.html

When you view the page source of the "An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later." error, that should provide more details on the specific cause.
its just when I try to view the site.

I backed up my sql database, backed up all the site files.
Uploaded the site files and imported the sql

Then tried to view the site and it gives the database error
