MySQL Workbench Visual Design Mac

A Huge Scare

MySQL Workbench Visual Design MacToday, in the wee hours (Pacific Time), one of my database tables somehow became corrupted. All efforts to repair it failed. My blog was dead. Totally dead!

Thank goodness I have a backup strategy that is automated and followed religiously.

I was able to import my blog from the backup from the night before, a backup that was not corrupted.

Now my blog is back, risen from the dead, as it were.

I just wish I knew what in the world irreparably corrupted the database because importing the backup is a total pain!

Note to self: If this ever happens again, the directions for importing the backup database file is named: Using SSH in Terminal to Import MySQL Database Backup Replacing Corrupt Database.
