when using mysql workbench I perform any operation on the table "my_table" I get an error:

Error Code: 2013 Lost connection to MySQL server during query

Previously I stopped the execution of a restore dump and the log showed the message:

"the table may be in an inconsistent state"

How can I solve this problem?

  • try mysqlcheck <DATABASE>. For more informations see a2hosting.com/kb/developer-corner/mysql/…

  • partially restored tables will definitely be in a inconsistent state. Rerun the restore and let it complete

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because. The solution is obvious, if you kill a restore, at least one table will be left in an inconsistent state.

  • How fast does the error come back? Immediately? Or minutes later?

If you kill a restore mid flow, then it is very likely you will leave a table in an inconsistent state.

The first thing you should try is to rerun the restore and allow it to complete.
