GIT is a valuable tool for maintaining version control for project files.  Unfortunately Bluehost does not provide "out of the box" support for installing or configuring git, so in order to get it installed on a shared Bluehost account the installation must be performed manually.  The following is a guide for installing the GIT version control package on a shared Bluehost environment.

Repair Corrupted MySQL Tables

I first noticed the issue when I attempted an automated backup using Drush.

The issue seemed to be due to a previous issue where our web server ran out of hard disk space, which resulted many of the databases becoming locked.

In my case, when I needed to perform a backup Drush resulted in the following error:  

“Database dump failed”

To further inspect the problem I initiated a manual mysqldump that also returned an error, but this time there was additional information provided along with the error.
