How to run isamchk?
Posted on 27 January 2004 11:47 PM
Question:

I think my database may be corrupted and I am unable to run isamchk on my tables. How can I check and/or repair my tables?

Answer:

As the databases are physically located on backside dedicated MySQL servers, 'isamchk' cannot be run from a Community Server.

However, you can perform maintenance to your tables via:
CHECK TABLE
and
REPAIR TABLE

Just FYI: Your tables are most likely MYISAM tables - if they are not, then we would recommend converting them from ISAM --> MYISAM... This can be done using ALTER TABLE:
ALTER TABLE
