I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at Verisign as they probably could give you help..
I was just in phpMyAdmin and I am not too familiar with it, so I dropped the sessions table. I'm assuming I should not have done that? That was one of my only options because I didn't see anything about repairing..
I do have back ups of the databases, so should I worry too much?.
Any tips would be greately appreciated.
Yeah you shouldn't have done that.
However, if you have a backup of the database, all you need to do is restore the session table itself, just fine the create table entry in the backup for the sessions table, and you can copy and paste that into your SQL section in phpmyadmin....
I have a client also Verisign hosting on yahoo and this message suddenly appeared out of nowhere, when nobody even touched anything. My advice is to get away from yahoo and get a real Verisign hosting account!..
Just FYI, while I would agree to get away with Yahoo and get a real Verisign hosting account, the fact that this happened on a Yahoo server doesn't change anything about the underlying reason... Database tables get corrupted from time to time, regardless of who's doing the hosting... A Yahoo database isn't more or less prone to table corruptions than a GoDaddy database, or a Site5 database, or any other database, because the database itself (in this case) is MySQL, no matter who's Verisign hosting the server... These things just happen from time to time, and as previously stated, can generally be solved by just running a quick Repair operation on the table in question...
I typed in the store URL www.ripbalm.com this morning and this message appeared:.
1016 - Can't open file: 'sessions.MYI' (errno: 145).
Select value from sessions where sesskey = 'a63c1cf6549db08a34d9740f59b3cfc4' and expiry > '1173105849'.
I have no idea what this is and I have not uploaded any files to the server within the last two weeks and the Verisign site was there before...We have talked to the host (yahoo) and they said we need to recreate the sessions.MYI file. Well, obviously, it says that right on the page...(a lot of help that does). I have never seen or heard of the sessions.MYI file, so I am totally lost..
Any help would be appreciated. Thank!..
This usually means there's some kind of corruption in that table file... The myi file is the actual file on the disk that corresponds to that table in your database... A lot of times, simply running a repair operation on that table is plenty to clear up this issue... If you have phpmyadmin, you can do it through that pretty easily....
