Re: jtablesession::Store Failed, DB function failed error 1062

I've just had exactly the same problem. Joomla 1.5.12 on a dedicated CentOS server.

Somebody before me mentioned that their server had been rebooted a few hours before the problem. Well, mine was the same - 2 hours and 17 minutes after a reboot the error showed up. I fixed it by repairing the jos_session table in phpMyAdmin, but I'm astounded that nobody has worked out what's causing it yet! Come on JoomGods - shine down on us all and fix this! :)

Unfortunately that fix doesn't work for everybody. The DB failed to repair from my Cpanel and PHPMyadmin. My webhosthad to perform the repair.

There was no MySQL upgrade performed? That's the only time I have seen this message is after a MySQL upgrade.

Just got this again - shortly after another reboot. I believe it has to do with certain parts of the drive being mounted as read-only by the OS after a reboot (as was mentioned by somebody else in this thread).

Somebody needs to write a PHP script that can be run as a cron job: IF the jos_session table is marked as crashed THEN repair it. Unfortunately it's above my coding abilities... :(

The other option is to switch the session handler off in the Joomla config - but I'm not sure what the repercussions of doing this might be?!

OK... It appears that it's not above my coding ability! :p

This is the new cron job I'm running:

Code: Select all

*/2 * * * * mysqlcheck -uDBUSER -pDBPASSWORD DBNAME jos_session --auto-repair
That runs a check on just the jos_session table (taking a matter of a couple of seconds) every minute 24/7/365 - automatically repairing the table if it's marked as crashed.

Note: I will not be held responsible for anybody running this cron job or messing up their site/server. You use this at your own risk - if you have no idea what a cron job is then this isn't for you! ;)

I had the session table crash immediately after Media Temple moved me from MySQL 4 to 5. Now I just got it again, but only on one Joomla site on the same grid (gs) account. Currently running Joomla 1.5.14, and I have set the session handler to none now.

I just went to "Clean Cache Admin" under "Tools" and clean it.
I hope this is good solution and not temporary healing :)

Check your databases. You may have outstanding tasks to perform. Upgrades to MySQL5 from MySQL4 may produce tables that need updating:

error : Table upgrade required. Please do "REPAIR TABLE `jos_session`" to fix it!

You will find all tables need repairing. Run this if you have root access:

/usr/bin/mysqlcheck --repair --all-databases

This is on RH/CentOS Linux, your command path may differ.

I have the same problem.
I also empty the jos_session table, but it does't work for me.

I found that my mysql account has permission for "Write" and "Admin" but I don't ckeck box for "Read only" permission. I think that if I were "Admin" than I will have all privileges but the select query is for the "read only account".
So when I check the check box for "Read only", then every thing goes fine.

I can't repair my jos_session
It seems that the total mysql have crashed. I can't access phpmyadmin.
"Can't start session without fault. Control errors in your PHP and/or webserver logfile and configure your PHP-install correct."

mysql> REPAIR TABLE 'jos_session';

I had same problem. Was able to fix it by using phpmyadmin to repair the jos_session table. I have no idea why this happened.

I met the same problem with 1.5.12 twice.
Repair or empty the table can fix the problem temporarily, which comes out again serveral weeks later.

I just turned the session management option from db to none, but it still writes the jos_session table when any page is visited.

I was on 1.5.10 and gave me this error, then repair the database and upgrade to 1.5.14, but this morning I got the same error again, Does anybody knows that causes this error in Joomla? and how definitely correct?

Reviewing the jos_session table data shows that all types are invited records, which makes me suppose that could be the search engine robots and one of them is trying to obtain unauthorized access? What think? Hacker Problem ??

This solution is NOT GOOD ENOUGH it is only temporary, The problem persist and surges again, I'm not sure what is causing this problem, but Joomla designers, should enable an option allowing us just to stop writing on this Jos_session table or something like that. This is a really disgusting problem.

I'm using 1.5.7 and had the same problem. myPhpAdmin reported that the jos_session table was marked as "crashed." It gave me only the option to flush it, which of course didn't work given that the table was marked crashed. I dumped the table structure of jos_session from another 1.5.6 installation, which produced the following:


Code:
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `jos_session` (
`username` varchar(150) default '',
`time` varchar(14) default '',
`session_id` varchar(200) NOT NULL default '0',
`guest` tinyint(4) default '1',
`userid` int(11) default '0',
`usertype` varchar(50) default '',
`gid` tinyint(3) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
`client_id` tinyint(3) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
`data` longtext,
PRIMARY KEY (`session_id`(64)),
KEY `whosonline` (`guest`,`usertype`),
KEY `userid` (`userid`),
KEY `time` (`time`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;


I then dropped the bad table and executed the above SQL, which restored everything completely.

I don't know if what worked for me is suitable for anyone else. Proceed with caution.

THIS WORKED FOR ME AS WELL. I WONDER WHAT CAUSED IT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Fingers crossed that it doesnt happen again? I havent seen any recomendations on how to avoid receiving the error, just how to repair the table once it does happen.

Running v1.5.15

Hi, any progress on this issue? This situation is really worrying as it causes very poor image with customers. Additionally, it has begun appearing again this another error:

Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL

I know how to solve it temporarily but definitively establishing any idea to fix it?

I received this exact same error when I ask screwing around with running Joomla on a Windows Apache/MySQL server simultaneously with Joomla on Ubuntu Linux Apache/MySQL on the same file system, which btw is on another a Linux partition I dual-boot from. I tried loading the home page with no login on both environments at the same time. Linux loaded successfully, where Windows got the error.

I was trying to find out what would happen if you had two MySQL servers trying to access the same data files at the same time...chaos. It's okay; it's just my development server.

In PhpMyAdmin, the jos_session table is corrupt. The record count is ~02 (the 2 is superscript, meaning it's exponentially screwed). I get the following error when I view the table:

#145 - Table '.\joomla15\jos_session' is marked as crashed and should be repaired

I performed the following command and it seemed to fix the jos_session table (it left 4 records):

myisamchk -r jos_session.MYI

Now everything's running fine. :)

I contacted my host about this problem and they responded

"Your database crashing issue is related with your /tmp partition low space:

When you mysql do logging and creating temp files then its filled up. Please let us know if we can change mysql /tmp to /home/****/tmp so that you won't get this issue in future."

I had them make the change and have not had a problem since.

I also just got this message. It was because my site had filled up its available disk storage space.

Solution took about 10 minutes:

Upgraded host account to increase disk space.
Reinstalled database with same name as original database.
Using MyPHPAdmin, used the database repair command.
Ta-da! Site was back online and running smoothly.

Hope this helps someone! :)

I used jos_session and emptied the table and that did the work for me.

I don't know why it does happen but I solved my problem login into phpMyAdmin.

Empty the session and it works.

I had the same problem today. I had recently installed a new template on my site and then left it for a couple of days. When I went to check my google adsense I saw it had only earned 0.20c instead of the usual much higher amount. I navigated to the site to find this famous error message:
"jtablesession::Store Failed
DB function failed with error number 1062 yada yada yada
"
Anyway...i had no problem with disc space allocation or over use of anything. Before having a knee jerk reaction and destroying the site completely by undoing and uploading all sorts of junk, I checked the notices here and figured that if I went to cpanel, mysql, and did a repair it should work fine. It did. After a few minutes of research the process itself took less than a 1 minute. Auto too. Very nice indeed.

Just to add to this, I just had this same problem:

jtablesession::store failed DB function failed with error number 1036
Table 'jos_session' is read only

We are using WAMP on a VM for testing, for some reason the jos_Sessions.MYI file chanegd to read only, so, that was changed, then went into phpmyadmin, checked the jos_sessions table, then truncated the data (it's only session data after all).

Problem fixed, site restored, fix added the the Tech notes for future reference ;)
