In this article we will show you two ways to repair a MySQL database.
- 1) Through cPanel:
Log in to your cPanel and go to MySQL Databases. In the section Modify Databases, select a database from the drop-down box next to and then click the Repair DB button.
If the database engine used by your database supports repair (for example, MyISAM supports it), you will see a list of the repaired tables within the database.
If your database engine does not support repair (e.g. InnoDB database engine), you will get the following error message:
note : The storage engine for the table doesn't support repair
- 2) Through phpMyAdmin:
Open your phpMyAdmin tool and select the database whose tables you wish to repair.
A list with all the database's tables will appear. Tick the tables you wish to repair, or simply click [Check All] to select all tables.
Click the box [With selected:] and choose Repair table. This will execute the REPAIR TABLE SQL query on the selected tables and they will be repaired.
