    I had a member email me this morning saying that he wasn't able to post. He is one that tends to have trouble with some things so I went on to check and sure enough it is doing it to me too.

    When you type your message in the quick reply and click reply nothing happens except for a clear message box with the x to close it.

    I checked the admincp and there are 10 of these errors:
    Zend_Db_Statement_Mysqli_Exception: Mysqli prepare error: Table './opt_opt/xf_search_index' is marked as crashed and should be repaired - library/Zend/Db/Statement/Mysqli.php:77

    Anyone have any recommendations on the best way to repair the table is? Also maybe why this error would have happened? I have no mods on the site other then the wordpress bridge and I don't think that would affect it.

    Do you have access to cPanel?
    You can click on MySQL Databases and there is an option to repair the table.

    Ensure you take a backup first just in case.

    I got the table repaired and can post on the forum again but I would like to figure out why the table got corrupted in the first place. Could it just have been a fluke?

    I did have a too many connections error on Nov 8th but other then that I haven't had any trouble.

    A table crash is usually related to server issues at the time the table is being written to.

    Are you on a shared server, VPS?

    I am on VPS.

    Last night I did the switch to the tables on my main site which is currently on vb4 to InnoDB tables and I also adjusted the my.cnf to allow min 3 letter searches rather then the default of 4 due to some complaints of not being able to search for terms like 800. So with that change I restarted mysql so maybe that might have been the cause? I am pretty sure though that there were some posts made on the xf site last night after I had restarted mysql. I will keep an eye on it. Hopefully I don't run in to any other problems.

    The XF site was just submitted to the search engines, I figured I might as well get it submitted since it will be a month or two till it really gets indexed. I would really like to get my main site switched to XF but there are a lot of variables and mods that need to come in to play first before I can make that switch.

    This would've helped in the beginning - this is exactly what caused it. The MySQL docs state that all of your full-text indexes need to be rebuilt after a change to the minimum word length, or you get this situation. :)

    Thank you for the confirmation Mike. I didn't even think about rebuilding the indexes other then the vb index not thinking it was going to affect the other sites. I have some reindexing to do :D
