There is a corrupt MySQL database table. ocPortal needs this table to function.

How did this happen?

Something outside the control of ocPortal caused this error, such as a hard disk fault, a power surge, a power cut, or a forced computer reset.

How do I fix it?

Your web host will almost certainly provide a hosting control panel with a tool called 'phpMyAdmin' (it may be called something else, such as 'Database management').
  1. Access / Log in to this tool
  2. Make sure you are in the database that ocPortal uses
  3. Tick (check) the table referenced in the error message.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the screen.
  5. In the 'With selected' option list, choose 'Repair table'.
  6. You should see the page reload with a message stating the repair was successful.

In in doubt or if the table will not repair, contact your web host.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
