I'd guess that too, but mainly because it is the only one I've worked with recently. I think it is commonly used. But I'm not about to claim any expertise, that is for sure.

OK, yes, it looks like SMF uses MySQL.  So that helps.

Vox, have you tried technical support with the company that manages your hosting?

Also, can you SSH into your server?

Regardless,  donations are necessary for this site to survive.
Inspite of the terrible server problem, whoever can donate, please do.
Good luck and God bless.

I just did a quick google search on SMF MYSQL corrupt, and the first case I saw similar to yours was, sure 'nuf, a hardware problem.

If the database is repairable to the point that the forum is useable at all, I don't think there is a deeper database issue at fault.  I suspect it is either something the forum software is doing that is corrupting the database regularly (in which case we can probably tap other users of this free software for their experience in fixing it) or a hardware problem (in which case it would be the responsibility of whoever manages the server to deal with it).  Vox, have you contacted whoever owns your server and informed them of these database corruptions so that they can check the hard drives, power supply, etc.?
