I'm getting 3 very similar phpMyAdmin errors on one of my WordPress databases.

More than one INDEX key was created for column `comment_approved`

More than one FULLTEXT key was created for column `post_title`

More than one INDEX key was created for column `lead_id`

Anyone know how to resolve these?

As it writes, a problem with the indexes definitions of those tables. Please try a repair on the reported table and see if that helps.

Have you activated a specific add-on lately or did you alter tables?

Nope, that did not fix. I run a LOT of WordPress sites, add-ons and updates happen regularly. – jnthnclrk Nov 25 '10 at 12:50
If automatic repair does not work, you need to manually repair the indexes and remove the problematic parts of the named indexes. – hakre Nov 26 '10 at 0:09
Would exporting and importing using the WP core export and import functions fix it? – jnthnclrk Nov 26 '10 at 14:46
