I encountered the following problem when I'm trying to open SOME tables in MySQL database:
"Incorrect information in file ./[database name]/[table name].frm"
Other tables within the same database can be opened without any issues, only some tables have this problem. And this is not just happening in one database, but the other database on the same server also has this problem (there are 2 databases AFAIK on this server). Not sure if anyone else is using this server. The database is InnoDB, running on Win2k3. Are there any other information that is required that I didn't provide?
I have read through posts in mysql forum and it seems like none of them is able to solve my problem. The database used to work since being deployed 2 years ago and the last time the my.ini is amended is 2 years ago.
It sounded like a data corruption issue to me and the only way is to perform data restoration from the last known working state. However, is there something wrong somewhere that I can check and fix without needing to do a restoration of the database? The users are dead against it as it would mean loss of data since the date of restoration.
