    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Make sure there are no corrupted tables preventing statistical data from being queried and maintained

    Procedure:
    Check Tables
    1. Access the Server using the relevant instance user
    2. Access the Server Admin Utility
    3. Type ‘4’ for Database maintenance
    4. Type ‘2’ for CHECK MySQL tables
    5. Press Enter to make sure all tables are checked
    6. Type ‘Y’ to continue
    It can take a while for all tables to be checked.
    The status will display for each table: ‘OK’, ‘Warning’ or ‘Error’ (meaning it is corrupt).
    The Warning status can be ignored.
