  • Cannot Run the repair utility

    When I run it is hangs for awhile then it gives me a 404 error screen.

    any ideas why?

    I close my board, make sure that the server load is very low before I start it...

    Server: Pentium 4 2.4gig
    Memory: 512meg
    HardDrive: 36gig SCSI
    OS: Linux

      Yes, it's in my admin directory and I get the inital screen that gives the instructions, I click the run button and it hangs there for about one to two mintes, then it gives an error 404 type screen.

        Honestly I've never heard of this problem before. Are you trying to fix a specific error? If so you can repair tables in phpMyAdmin:

            are all the tables bad?

            you only need to run repair if the table is cruppeted

              I get random vb database errors emailed to me, I guess I need to pay more attention to the error, but I am sure there is a table problem.

                what version of mysql and do you have ssh telnet access ?

                if you have ssh telnet access and mysql 3.23.38 and above run this instead

                to check for errors (only outputs errors - ignore session table related messages)

                mysqlcheck -s -u mysqlusername -p databasename

                then to repair

                mysqlcheck -r -q -u mysqlusername -p databasename

                at each command it will prompt you for your mysqlusername's password
