Database Integrity


This module is now deprecated. If you're running 2.1.5 or later of the Form Tools Core, use the System Check module instead.

Database Integrity module
Database Integrity module
This module was written to help debug problems that arise with Form Tools. The module provides you with a couple of quick, simple tests to run on your database. This is well, well worth doing: in the very least to confirm that the problems you're encountering are not due to a corrupt database.

The tests

The module offers two tests:

How could a database get corrupted?

This can happen in a number of different ways, but the most likely causes are:

  • Problems with upgrading. This can occur if the SQL updates in the upgrade script fail to run properly, either to a bug in the code or a problem with the content that was FTP'd to your server.
  • If someone manually edited your database.

Compatibility

  • This module supports all final releases of the Form Tools Core (at the time of writing: 2.0.0-2.0.6, 2.1.0-2.1.4).
  • It will not work with early beta releases.

Any modules that have custom database tables may also use this module to test their database integrity. I will be adding support for this module to all relevant modules.
