WordPress: Redirect HTTP to HTTPS in Apache

To redirect all of your HTTP traffic to HTTPS on WordPress installations using an Apache web server, add the following code to your .htaccess file. This is the recommended method for redirecting WordPress running on Apache.


RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.url.com/$1 [R=301,L]

This should begin to work immediately.

Repairing WordPress MySql Table corruption

We suffered a SAN outage which caused one of our wordpress servers to come back up with a corrupted table.


In the wordpress logs this presented as:

[error][client IP] Request exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error. Use 'LimitInternalRecursion' to increase the limit if necessary. Use 'LogLevel debug' to get a backtrace., referer: http://example.com/

Not exactly clear error message.  Digging into the mysqld log was more illustrative of the problem:

[ERROR] /usr/libexec/mysqld: Table './db/wp_options' is marked as crashed and should be repaired

(The database name was changed to protect the innocent).

With the above error, I now understood the problem and how to approach fixing it.

# mysql -u root -p
Enter password:
Type ‘help;’ or ‘\h’ for help. Type ‘\c’ to clear the current input statement.

mysql> connect db;

Connection id: 2244
Current database: db

mysql> select * from wp_options limit 1;
ERROR 145 (HY000): Table ‘./db/wp_options’ is marked as crashed and should be repaired
mysql> repair table wp_options;
| Table | Op | Msg_type | Msg_text |
| db.wp_options | repair | info | Wrong block with wrong total length starting at 52540 |
| db.wp_options | repair | warning | Number of rows changed from 314 to 313 |
| db.wp_options | repair | status | OK |
3 rows in set (0.05 sec)

mysql> select * from wp_options limit 1;
| option_id | option_name | option_value | autoload |
| 1 | siteurl | https://example.com | yes |
1 row in set (0.01 sec)

mysql> exit

And that quickly the site was back up and functional, no restart required!

Hope that helps someone or me in the future.
