The e-commerce.

is there a fix for this?


Recommended Posts

I had another site with this error message and store was down.


I ran to repair the tables and got this message:

Repairing tables


error : The handler for the table doesn't support repair



Is there anyway to fix the whos_online table so this will stop happening?

Quick fix is a drop and re-create:


CREATE TABLE whos_online (

 customer_id int,

 full_name varchar(64) NOT NULL,

 session_id varchar(128) NOT NULL,

 ip_address varchar(15) NOT NULL,

 time_entry varchar(14) NOT NULL,

 time_last_click varchar(14) NOT NULL,

 last_page_url varchar(64) NOT NULL

And complain to your host that they need to roll back to MySQL v 3.xx.


Version 4.1.12 is not stable in conjunction with the cpanel auto update.


NOTE: As of Oct 2006, I'm not as active in this forum as I used to be, but I still work with osC quite a bit.

If you have a question about any of my posts here, your best bet is to contact me though either Email or PM in my profile, and I'll be happy to help.

I did drop the table and redo it.


I am the host and I don't want to revert back to mysql 3.0.


There are only 2 sites that I'm having problems with.
