Check a Database for Errors

If you are experiencing problems using any database related software you have installed on the server, you may check your databases for errors.

To check a database:

  1. In the Check DB drop-down menu, select the database you wish to check.
  2. Click Check DB.
    • cPanel will run a script that checks to make sure the database is functional. The results will appear on a new screen.
      • If cPanel detects a problem in the database, it will indicate which table is corrupted.
      • If the Check Complete message appears without a notification that the database is corrupted, then the database is functional.
  • Email, SSL
