    Repair phpbb_users table without a complete reinstall?

    I corrupted my user table while working on an integration. It's on a dev server, so no big deal. However, we have edited some of the scripts and, although we backed those scripts up, I'm wary of taking the risk that we may have missed one. Is there a way to restore the default system and search engine accounts without reinstalling phpBB?

    Not sure if this is what you mean, but did you try the 'repair table xxxx' mysql command?

    Perhaps "restore" would be a better word. I just want to re-populate the phpbb_users table with the pre-defined accounts that are created at installation.

    Yeah, repair table is only any use if you still have the corrupted table.

    I still have the table, but the entire "username" column is empty. I doubt the REPAIR statement can figure out the missing field values.
