How to repareer tabel database

How can I repair corrupt MySQL tables?
Every so often, MySQL tables have a way of corrupting themselves. MySQL offers a quick and painless method of repairing those tables.
Login to your VDS via SSH and change directories to the database that is having problems.

cd /usr/local/mysql/var/[DBNAME]/

You will need to replace [DBNAME] with the actual name of your database.
Stop the MySQL server:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysql stop

NOTE: Accounts created before July 7th, 2003 will want to use:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld stop

To check the tables:
myisamchk *.MYI

To repair tables:
myisamchk -r *.MYI

Restart MySQL:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysql start

NOTE: Accounts created before July 7th, 2003 will want to use:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld start

Alternatively, if you do not want to shut down MySQL, you can use mysqlcheck.
mysqlcheck [DBNAME]

To repair the database tables:
mysqlcheck -r [DBNAME]

You will need to replace [DBNAME] with the actual name of your database.
