Impossible to access the WinBoard forum

Post by Roland Chastain » Fri Jul 31, 2020 10:10 am

Hello everybody!

For several days I have noticed that I cannot access the WinBoard forum. Is it the same for you?

Here is what I get:
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Table 'wbf3_sessions' is marked as crashed and should be repaired [1194]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.
I have just sent an email to the administrator.

Regards.

Roland

Yes, there is a MySQL problem (From the sound of it, the Winboard Forum 3 sessions table has a data problem) and the database will have to be restored or rebuilt, according to the message.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Thank you for the confirmation.

Hello Roland:

I get the same error. However, I can access the forum with Google Chrome if I click on the upper right message 'Return to index page'. If you leave the forum and do not clear browser history, you can reach the forum again without the SQL error.

Regards from Spain.
