    I originally posted this in another thread, but thought it might help to start it in a new thread so I can at least help others see how to fix... or kinda fix.

    my forum went down and generated a "unavailable message". my host InMotion did a SQL repair, but was unable to get me back up.

    I went into my cpanel and truncated the xf_session table and the forum came back up.

    I'm still trying to figure out what caused this problem... any suggestions appreciated.

    xf_session is one of the few MyISAM tables. Is that table corrupt? Try running a repair in phpmyadmin. Most of XF's tables are InnoDB and don't support repair, but xf_session is MyISAM and can be repaired.

    Without a specific error message I can't be sure about the problem though.

    Your forum is going to be busy. You may need memcached and turn session into cache.
