XF 1.5 xf_thread_view' doesn't exist !! Did I just loose all my thead ?

This is started to happen few hours ago and all my threads are inaccessible. There has been no changes made so not sure what it thinks that a table is missing. Is there a solution to this without using backup ?

Frontend Error:

Check with your host for any changes or issues on the server.

Tables should never randomly disappear from the database.

It should be possible to restore that particular table from a backup without any issues.

The important question is certainly how it got to be deleted.

The table is only a temporary table for counting how many times a thread is viewed. I would probably suggest, therefore, it's not worth restoring from a backup. You can re-create the table by running this query (you may still need your host for this):

CREATE TABLE xf_thread_view (
    thread_id INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL,
    KEY thread_id (thread_id)
But, again, please report this to your host and try and find out how it came to be deleted. There are certainly much worse tables that could get deleted. You should also make sure you have a current backup, just in case.
