    I am running a busy forum on mySQL-4.0.13. No problems. Actually seems to run faster than before.

    As advised, I dumped my vBulletin DB before upgrading (from mySQL 3.23.55) and then restored it (the "mysql -p < infile.sql" thingy).

    I guess you will have problems if you try to upgrade from 3.x to 4.x and copy the 3.x data files over to the 4.x installation (the lazy thing - which is probably what the ISP did, I'm guessing).

    The mySQL manual specifically states that data files are only compatible within the same base version number of mySQL.

    If you are upgrading from 3.x to 4.x, dump the databases and restore. Do not just copy the data files over - you will have problems.

    What about HyTek Hosting? Does anyone have experience with them?

    iPowerweb sucks! Plain and simple. And they know they suck that's why they don't have an online forum like the good folks here at vBulletin.

    I was with iPowerweb for a short while but after so many screwups from them, I took them up on their 30 day money back offer. (which also proved to be a chore) It was a total nightmare dealing with them. Im with Lunar pages now and they are fantastic!!! http://www.lunarpages.com Lunar has an online forum http://www.lunarforums.com/ so you can get help when you need it (and it's lightning fast) and you can talk to other users of their hosting services. Just try that with iPower. All you have to go on with them is what "they" say. They don't even have an FAQ!! You have to write them if you need anything and most times, they don't write back. Want to try the phone instead for that important question? Get ready to pay long distance charges while they put you on an endless hold.

    Sorry to rant but I want to warn everyone I can about that outfit. STAY AWAY!

    Incorrect. VO upgraded to 4.x MySQL several weeks ago.

    Now ALL shared servers are downgraded and running latest 3.x for quite a while now.

    4.x is teh bomb and it shouldn't be a problem.

    Just optimize and repair the post & thread table and it is all sweet to go.
    I'm on their v500 plan so I didn't have any say in the matter, maybe they switched off auto update on cpanel?

    Then again, they have had to work on the server I'm on to sort some problems.

    I'm running 4.0.12 and have never had this problem, as is true with many others. I don't recall eva's explanation but the fix does work.

    Thanks. I'm wondering though, how does this fix the problem? If the host is still running 4.0.12, won't the new db get corrupted as well?

    Incorrect, they downgraded because of the this issue, they'd be pretty foolish to upgrade again.

    Try using mysqldump to create a sql backup your database - mysqldump guide
    at http://www.sitepoint.com/article/678

    Then create a new empty database name and import the mysql sql backup back into the empty database, and edit config.php to point to the new database

    Also take a read of

    http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Corrupte...AM_tables.html

    and
