How can I stop the 'in use' message from intermittently occurring in phpMyAdmin wp_posts table?

I have no warnings and no error messages prior, but when it happens to my wp_posts table, all my content is blocked from loading. A repair table always fixes it, but this is a temporary fix until it happens again.


If repairing the table fixes it, you can schedule a repair database as often as needed, I use a plugin called WP-DBManager, after installation go to Database > DB Options and find Automatic Scheduling, you will have to work on Automatic Repairing Of DB, I think every hour is ok, not so often but often enough.

  • Thank you for the quick response. I'm going to try your suggestion and hopefully it will help resolve the problem.
