I think that my mySQL database is corrupt, and after consultation with Digital Ocean the help guy has advised me to run an innodb_force_recovery. They have sent me over a link to a document that explains the process, however I am at a loss as to how to run the command via the Digital Ocean console. Do I need to be in a specific folder 1st, run another command before hand, etc?
Any help will be appreciated.
(please note that I did not set up this droplet, i’ve inherited it when the previous person left. I only have the root user password, and the database password in the wordrpress php file)
