Got error 28 from storage engine

Post by pscaffidi » 14 Sep 2016, 07:04

I am seeing this error repeating frequently in my php error log. I have tried repairing the tables with no luck. Does anyone have any idea how to resolve this?

Hi, that is a very strange error message. Try the following, make sure you create a backup first. Install one of WordPress default themes like Twenty Fifteen or Sixteen. Then uninstall and delete Suffusion theme. Check to see if you still receive the same error message. If you don't then install a fresh copy of Suffusion, then check again to see if you see that error message. To download a zip copy of suffusion go to the following URL and click on the link that says ZIP.
