I spent WAY too long this morning working on a post here… got ready to hit print… and was told by WordPress the post no longer existed. Even better? Every post and page on the entire site was gone. Even better? MySQL said the posts table had crashed.
I use a plugin that backs up this website regularly, so it wouldn’t have been tragic – just painful. However the post I spent the morning working on was totally gone. I was able to repair the posts table using the MySQL repair function, but that post was GONE.
