your forum wrote:Table 'ijamesho.smf1_sessions' doesn't exist
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/cannot-find-table.html (link).


I take it you installed XAMPP 1.7.0 because you did not mention that or indeed what OS you are using.


Before following the procedure below go to xampp\mysql\bin folder and double click on mysql_upgrade.exe and when it has finished check your forum again.

If the problem is still there then follow the procedure below but it won't do any harm to do it anyway after doing the above database upgrade.


Open phpMyAdmin http://localhost/phpmyadmin login as root so you are at the home page with the databases listed in the left frame.

Click on your database name so you see in the right frame all your tables.

Down at the bottom of the list of tables you should see Check All / Uncheck All

Click on Check All and it will put a tick in all the boxes next to each table.

Now find next to the Check all/Uncheck All a drop menu With selected: showing.

Click on the drop menu and select Repair Table.

You should see at the top of the window after the tables have been repaired a message in green:
Your SQL query has been executed successfully

All the repaired table should have a repair status OK next to them when complete.

Job done.

Check your forum again and if all is OK close phpMyAdmin.

This is an XAMPP For Windows English forum not a brinkster forum!
Talk to brinkster support Live Help about fixing your database and or your website.
If they won't help then find a better hosting service that will help.

The instruction I gave you above are for a web site and database installed in XAMPP.

Do you have any specific issues with your XAMPP installation?

Google is your best friend for your other questions.

Read the Apache Friends website including the FAQ

Search these forums for possible answers to your XAMPP issues.

Read the Forum Announcements.
