    In my nightly backup emails, I am getting the following error when running an incremental backup:

    Entering timeout safety mode

    /usr/bin/mysqldump: Can't get CREATE TABLE for table `ibf_posts` (Can't open file: 'ibf_posts.MYI'. (errno: 144))
    Done
    Grabbing mysql privs...Done

    Anybody have any ideas why that error is occurring. The application that runs off that database is running fine, but I want to make sure I have a good backup.

    Does this happen every time /scripts/cpbackup runs? Or is it just now and again?

    As far as I remember, .MYI files are database indices. If the application is running fine, then there's possibly nothing drastically wrong with the database.

    However, you might want to check that /var/lib/mysql/username_databasename/ibf_posts.MYI does exist. If it does, go into phpMyAdmin and see if it shows any errors when trying to read the table data.

    It does it every time and I have no problem browsing it with phpMyAdmin. The application that uses that table has no problems. I am just concerned about the integrity of the backup.
