Mysql : Repair corrupted table using myisamchk

Use the below command to list all the corrupted tables :

myisamchk -s /var/lib/mysql/*/*.MYI

Recover the tables :

myisamchk -r /var/lib/mysql/database_name/table_name.MYI

If you are getting the error ‘myisamchk: warning: 1 client is using or hasn’t closed the table properly’, the database is currently using…

then do the following :

Log into the database server : mysql -u username -p
Select the database : use database_name;
Verify the tables : show tables;
Repair the table : repair table table_name;

Thats all………. 🙂
