How to check MySQL databases for errors

If you are unable to access or connect to one of your MySQL databases, you can check it for errors within the Hosting Manager.
To check your MySQL database for errors, follow the steps below:

  1. Click Sign Up / Log In at the top of this page.
  2. Select Hosting Manager from the drop-down menu.
  3. Enter your username and password, and click Log In.
  4. On the Home page, click the word Databases or the [ v ] arrow symbol on the right side.
  5. Click the MySQL Databases button, which is next to phpMyAdmin icon.
  6. Under Modify Databases, go to Check Database. Select the database you want to check, then click the Check Database button to the right.
  7. The system will then run a script to check the database.
    If the system detects an error, it will say so in the results page and will even specify where the corrupted files or sections can be found.
    If the database has no problems, it will display grey box with list of sections with OK statuses and the phrase Check Complete at the bottom.
