WordPress Repair Database

Today, one of my sites was not loading correctly – images and text were not displaying which I guessed that the database was corrupted.
In an older post I outlined how to repair mySQL tables using a tool called mysqlcheck. This process may have been a bit too difficult for some so I wanted to outline an easier way of doing a repair if you’re using WordPress. Follow these steps:

1. Login to your hosting account

2. Edit the wp-config.php file

3. Add the line

So the config should look like this:

WordPress Repair Database

4. Make sure you save the file.

5.Now go to your wordpress site: e.g.

http://websiteaddress.com/wp-admin/maint/repair.php

You will see the below screen. Just click on Repair and Optimize Database.

6. Let it run and once completed test your site to see if it now works.

7. If it works, then go back into the wp-config.php file and remote the line
