My hosting service is MediaTemple. They have 24 hour phone support. They are awesome about helping the techno-illiterate, like me.
When I was in Budapest and Prague last week, I published 61 pictures, and my blog publishing platform on the MovableType side went berserk! Every time I would attempt to do anything, MT would log me out. I had never had this happen before and was clueless.
This morning, in my jet lag induced quasi-stupor, I decided I had to fix this problem. O horror!
Amazingly, I was able to determine that a specific table (mt_session) in my mySQL database for MT4 was corrupted and needed to be repaired. But I have no idea to repair a mySQL database table. In desperation I called MediaTemple.
As I feared, this was “outside the scope of support,” but the guy did it anyway and walked me through what to do if (when) this happens again.
Awesome! Now I can publish some of the pictures from Prague!
