How to fix errors with database tables

Sometimes, when you move your WordPress to a new hosting or restore the website from a backup, some database tables that are created and used by WP Cerber Security might become corrupted or be deleted.

To fix this issue and repair the WP Cerber tables, follow the steps below.

  1. Log into the WordPress admin dashboard.
  2. In the admin menu, click WP Cerber -> Tools. You will be taken to the Tools page.
  3. On the Tools page, click the Diagnostic tab.
  4. Scroll down to the Database Info and find the Repair Cerber’s Tables button in the bottom of the section.
  5. Click the button to initiate repair.

During the repairing procedure, the WP Cerber recreates its database tables if they are missing and updates the structure of existing ones if it’s needed. It’s safe, no data will be affected.
