How To Check And Repair The Database?
First you should know how to check a database? Though for checking and repairing of a database, there are similar steps to follow. There is only one difference between both. You will see it later.
There are some steps to follow. I am going to list them one-by-one and you have to go through those steps.
Step 1: You have to login to your Web Hosting account and then go to cPanel provided to you. Search for the databases section.
Step 2: Click on “phpMyAdmin” and a new tab will open for you.
Step 3: You will have to select the name of the database you want to check. You can see the name of the database in the left-hand-side menu. There will be a plus sign by clicking at which you can explore all the databases. After that, you can select the database you want to check.
Step 4: After selecting the database, all the tables will be shown to you. If you want to check the database then you have to select all the tables present. Just click at the bottom in the box and all the tables will be selected.
Step 5: Now you to take the final step for checking the database. You will find many options in the bottom of all the tables, there will be a drop-down menu. You have to find “check table”.
Step 6: You will see a message showing that all the tables have checked. If you want to see the status of the each table then in front of each table, you will see “OK” under “Msg_text” column field. It means all the tables are doing great. There is nothing to worry about.
If you don’t get “OK” message then you have to repair the database using a repair option. Most of the time a database gets repaired using this option. But if you don’t get the results you are hoping for, then you have to upload the backup of your old database.
