Error: wp_options table is marked as crashed

In some instances, due to the MySQL upgrade, the wp_options table can get locked and rendered seemingly unusable.

  1. Please download the plugin called InnoDB Autoconvert here.
  2. Extract the directory and place it in your Applications/Xampp/ds-plugins directory.
  3. Restart DesktopServer and you'll notice that the InnoDB Autoconvert is now an available plugin.
  4. Enable this and then, from the main menu, select the "copy" option and copy the problematic website to a new instance.
  5. The InnoDB Autoconvert plugin will update the tables properly and you should have a working website.

Please keep in mind that this is a brand new plugin, so should you have any issues, please do not hesitate to let us know.
