  • My Database is just like UGH......a SICK Puppy, PLEase Help

    I haven't really had time to E-mail the proper person here at VBulletin to complain about the software because I am such a busy person, but now I seriously don't know what to do. My database has been down for over a week. I have restarted mySQL several times and ran all the combinations there are on the repair.php file, but still, everything I get is this:

    There seems to have been a slight problem with the World of Britney.com Forums database.
    Please try again by pressing the refresh button in your browser.

    An E-Mail has been dispatched to our Technical Staff, who you can also contact if the problem persists.

    We apologise for any inconvenience.


    I can't even get into the Control Panel either.

    I E-mailed my host and this is what they said:

    All of your databases are still there. The last update to alot of the
    files was on July 18th. Are you sure that you page is actually connecting
    to the databases? Your threat databases are showing todays date about 5
    minutes ago and the search databases about an hour ago.

    Also, your databases are the only ones running so all of the status must
    be referring to your databases.


    So, I'm like going nuts here, I have over 3000 members and they are the biggest Britney Spears forums out there, part of my website World of Britney.com.

    Will somebody please help me? It took me a lot to pay for the license so I'd appreciate if someone from the staff could help me out asap? Thanks so much..

    "An E-Mail has been dispatched to our Technical Staff, who you can also contact if the problem persists." - What does the email say?

    Also, check the admin/config.php file to see if the correct database information is listed there.

        Post what errors the e-mail gives you here and maybe we can further help you . It could be something very simple or something much greater, the e-mails should show what is wrong.

          post the source code of the error page, that will have more details.

          //edit: duh, i just went to your site:


          <!-- Database error in vBulletin 2.2.6:

          Invalid SQL: SELECT COUNT(*) AS users,MAX(userid) AS max FROM user
          mysql error: Can't open file: 'user.MYD'. (errno: 126)

            If you had read the thread at the top of this forum, entitled Dealing with Database Errors you would have found that you need to repair the table, the specific error code 126 means "Index file is crashed / Wrong file format"

            Try doing the following
            using mysqlcheck repair for 3.23.38 and above
            i.e. in shell/telnet/ssh type while mysql is running and forum is CLOSED:
            mysqlcheck -r -u mysqlusername -p databasename

            via myisamchk repair functions while mysql is shutdown/stopped in shell/telnet/ssh type :
            myisamchk -r -u root -p databasename

                    Repair.php won't work on the user table. You need to run this query in phpMyAdmin or its equivalent:

                      allright, that is good info, all I need to know now is how to close the forums without being able to access the control panel....

                        I don't think you need to worry about closing it first since no one can access it anyway. I would make a backup of the database, then run the query.
