SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 144 Table './wcf/wbb1_post_search_index' is marked as crashed and last (automatic?) repair failed

  • Hi there,


    Just this morning out of nowhere something crashed on my database.


    SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 144 Table './wcf/wbb1_post_search_index' is marked as crashed and last (automatic?) repair failed


    There is EXCEPTION ERROR everytime I


    Make a new thread
    Make a new post
    Delete a post or a thread


    There is no problem in adding visitor message or chatting in shoutbox etc.


    So it seems problem is specific to posts and probably related to search index.

    • Official Post

    According to the error message, the table is broken in the database and could not be repaired automatically. Execute the following SQL query in phpMyAdmin to re-create the table. Thereafter, the search index needs to be rebuilt in the ACP.


  • Strange. Before I was going to run the query I just decided to check if the problem is still there and now posts are going normally. Posts are deleting also without an issue. New threads also no issue.


    very strange.
