    I have been experiencing databse errors frequently since the last one month. I thought this was an issue with my hoster so i have been nagging them to fix it but all their fixes seems to be temporary. Now the crash happens every alternate days.
    Hostgator have repaired the database like 10 times but it keeps crashing every alternate days.

    The following is one such error (my ste is running but whenever i try to post something or upload something.. this is what i get)

    Sometimes the error mentions EWRPorta too... I am just wondering whether the error is due to the scripts i am running or is it on the part of my server..

    Plz advise.

    It's likely a server problem.

    Try rebuilding the search index in the ACP though to renew the table contents anyway.

    Thanks Brogan for replying..

    I tried to rebuild the search index and the same error gets thrown up. :(

    Did you repair the table first?

    If you use cPanel, click on MySQL Databases, then click Repair DB next to the one you wish to repair.

    Oh thanks Brogan... that did it.

    Can't believe Hostgator took more than 6 hrs and still they didn't assign anyone because they had high number of tickets to attend ::mad:

    okay, I'm having this issue, frequently - like every other hour and it just started happening today. I truncated the table, but it only seems to solve the problem temporarily. When I attempted to repair the table, it came up with an error:

    If this is happening with any frequency -- and I probably mean more than once per, I don't know, year? -- you need to contact your host. Table corruption generally indicates a server issue (including a full disk) or someone is shutting down MySQL incorrectly.

    If they can't resolve the issue, I'd have to recommend another host.

    It's seemed to have resolved itself since last night, after I contacted my host. It was really starting to get annoying, though.

    Thanks for the response :)

    I have been experiencing this issue for weeks. My host arvixe has not done anything to repair the issue. If I try to repair it myself it only works for a few minutes or posts then it gets messed up again.

    As posted above, you should consider switching hosts if your current host is unwilling or unable to resolve it.

    Could that mean that I have filled the gigabytes they allocated for me? I have some big image files on our site.

    Shouldn't if you are on shared... now if you are on a VPS that uses it's own file space (which it sounds like) then yes, if you have filled up the space you need to get more.

    I don't have a backup of when the forum last worked correctly. If I move to a new host with my corrupted database is it repairable by following the steps in this thread or do they have to fix it? How would they do that?

    From what it looks like it's only the xf_session, so even if it isn't able to be repaired it shouldn't be a huge deal to just recreate the table. Users will be logged out, but no posts/threads/users will be lost
