WordPress wp_options table crashed

asked Sep 29, 2013 in Database by SaraSX (2,770 points)
Hi all
I would really appreciate any help on this. I m running WordPress 3.6.1 web site and everything was working well until recently when I started  having some issues in my database wp_options table. This is the error I am getting: “Table is marked as crashed”. I am not sure how to fix it. Tried logging in and out, leaving it for sometimes and trying again, but that didn’t work. I haven’t had any issues before with my tables so I am not sure where to start from. Can anyone please help me solve this?
Many thanks in advanced

This message means that your file is corrupted, and I don’t think there is any way to fix this file. My suggestion would be that if you have a backup then restore the file from your database backup.

If you don’t have a backup your hosting provider might have one. Check and see if your hosting provider can restore your backup.
