I woke up this morning to find that my site was down. Every webmasters nightmare. I logged on remotely to the site and found that the virtualised servers I run it on had crashed for some reason overnight this taking out out of action. When I broswed the site locally on the server I was able to get additional information about the crash error and it told me that some of the tables in the MySQL database were indeed crashed. A quick google and I found this blog post that helped me to repair the database. I had two tables corrupt and once repaired the site was back online. The two tables I had that were crashed were wp_wassup and wp_wassup_tmp. Fix was then pretty easy for both and took only a couple of minutes.
