Yes. I recently had a database crash of some kind while I was away that
took out 14 tables in my mythconverg. In MySQL, they are files so they can
be damaged individually. Restoring that table from backup is your best
option. I believe the official recommendation would be to restore the
entire DB to it's pre-trunk upgrade state and let trunk re-do the schema
This would also be a good time to look into some simple scripts to
backup/dump the database regularly to another drive.
He shouldn't need any special scripts.
mythconverg_backup.pl is available on the wiki
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Database_Backup_and_Restore as well as in the
Not to say that I have a script that I run instead. Been using it since
before mythconverg_backup.pl existed and never saw a reason to change.
