    Read full summary

    The error 1030, also called ER_GET_ERRNO, is an error related to the storage engine, which is the software component used by MySQL to access data from the database. The storage engine component reads, modifies, or deletes data from the database. MySQL includes two different storage engines – MyISAM and InnoDB. The latter is the default engine from version 8 of MySQL.

    When reading or writing the data, you may get the following error:

    Error: 1030 SQLSTATE: HY000 (ER_GET_ERRNO)
    Message: Got error %d from storage engine

    To get the complete error description, you can use the following command from the shell:

    perror 127

    The response will be like:

    Error code 127: Record-file is crashed.

    It looks there is a corruption issue.

    Let’s see how to fix this error.

    How to Fix MySQL Error 1030?

    MySQL provides commands to check and repair corrupted tables. Let’s see how to verify if a table is corrupted.

    To check if a table is corrupted, use the command CHECK TABLE as given below.

    CHECK TABLE <NAME_OF_THE_MYISAM_TABLE> [ , table2, table3, ..][option]

    The ‘Option’ parameter can have the values, such as FOR UPGRADE, QUICK, FAST, MEDIUM, EXTENDED, or CHANGED.

    For example:


    The MyISAMCHK command provides information about a table when the engine used is MyISAM.

    This is the syntax:


    Specify the –recover (or –r) option to perform data repair in the table. It will fix any problem, except problems related to unique key.

    For example:


    Repeat the same procedure for all the corrupt tables. Stop the MySQL service before executing data repair.

    If there are many damaged tables, the repair operation becomes lengthy, increasing the chances of mistakes while performing the operation. Due to this, the MyISAMCHK command may fail.

    At this point, it may be useful to use a tool developed specifically for MySQL database recovery.
