Questions and Answers
Q: My database seems b0rked
A: Try these magic incantations, it will try to fix broken databases:
mysqlcheck -r -u mythtv -pmythtv mythconverg
If you only want to check which part of the data base that is broken, run mysqlcheck without the -r.
Q: When running mysqlcheck I get the error message "Access denied for user ..."
A: The problem may be that you are using the wrong password. The following commands will change the mysql password to "mythtv":
# mysql -u root -p mysql myqsl> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'mythtv'@'localhost' -> IDENTIFIED BY 'mythtv' WITH GRANT OPTION; mysql> UPDATE user SET Password=PASSWORD('mythtv') WHERE user='mythtv'; mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES; mysql> quit
Note that you will have to change the database password in the mythtv setup to "mythtv" once you get it running again.
