Very frequent database connection error at my website. Admin mentions it is due to corrupted table but I have not found any corrupted data in the tables. Please kindly advise.

Hello perfumestore!

Sorry to hear abut the Database Connection Error. Its possible it could be a corrupt table. You can try repairing the database in your cPanel. You can also try resetting the database password for the user. There maybe a password conflict with the database user. Another cause could be the database user permissions. You can try resetting the permissions for the user as well.

Its difficult to say without being able to replicate the problem. When you get the database connection error, you should contact tech support so they can review the logs while its occurring. Sorry for the trouble.

Best Regards,
James R
