Phew , now that was a long title. Anyway , let me get back to my story. As you all do know that I am using this all in one SEO tool that claims to improve my search rankings in order to gain more traffic. In other words , more traffic means more revenue. That is why these days bloggers go crazy on SEOs. That’s a whole other chapter in blogging. So as I was just about to add keywords and title to the SEO boxes (which makes use of WordPress custom fields) , WordPress did shoot me an error saying that “An unidentified error has occurred”.
An unidentified error has occurred – Ouch !
I thought it must have to do with my keywords or something. So I kept on trying and until at point , as I was just to give up – I stumbled across this blog entry in Google (phew , thank god for Google). According to the blog author , it seems that the SQL database needs to be fixed in order to rectify the issue and voila it did the trick. But thats not all , being an analytical person I took a step deeper in knowing what caused the problem and how to fix it. Lets take a look at it shall we (Oh yeah I am going to do in point form so its easier for people to read instead of me being long winded)

Fixing the issue :- If you do have cPanel X , then its pretty simple. All you have to do is select MySQL Database in the main menu and then select your wordpress SQL database and hit check first and followed by repair. Usually that would do the trick
Simply hit Check DB and followed by Repair DB in your cPanel X control panel to get it sorted out
