Repair Corrupted MySQL Tables

Submitted by Will Jackson on Mon, 02/18/2013 - 1:55pm

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.
