  • What does this error mean?

    We apologise for any inconvenience."

    What is wrong? Is the Mysql dbase messed up somehow? This is on a new board. Just installed, so there are no users yet besides me. So it cant be too busy or anything.

    Thanks in advance

    Is it an intermitant error?

    Posting the source code of the error page will help also.

      Here is the source

      <!-- Database error in vBulletin Control Panel: Invalid SQL: INSERT INTO adminlog (adminlogid,userid,dateline,script,action,extrainfo) VALUES (NULL,'1',987990928,'index.php','','')
      mysql error: Can't open file: 'adminlog.MYD'. (errno: 145)
      mysql error number: 1016
      Date: Sunday 22nd of April 2001 09:55:28 PM
      Script: /bbs/admin/index.php

      So, obviously a problem in adminlog....but isnt that on my servers side?

        you're on your own dedicated server ?

        if so you can fix it by running myisamchk if you're using mysql 3.23.x or isamchk if you're running mysql 3.22.x
