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 <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/how-to/is-mysql-available" target="_blank">Database Connection Error</a>. Its possible it could be a corrupt table. You can try <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/databases/check-repair-database" target="_blank">repairing the database in your cPanel</a>. You can also try <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/databases/reset-database-password" target="_blank">resetting the database password for the user</a>. There maybe a password conflict with the database user. Another cause could be the database user permissions. You can try <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/databases/create-db-user" target="_blank">resetting the permissions for the user</a> as well.

Its difficult to say without being able to replicate the problem. When you get the database connection error, you should <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/website-troubleshooting/how-to-get-great-technical-support" target="_blank">contact tech support</a> so they can review the logs while its occurring. Sorry for the trouble.

Best Regards,
