Database issues after enabling multisite on GoDaddy

I am updating a client's site on godaddy right now. When I enabled multisite,I got database issues. It asked me to enable WP_ALLOW_REPAIR and then I got this feedback:

wp_1_posts: Table 'bclover.wp_1_posts' doesn't exist
wp_1_comments: Table 'bclover.wp_1_comments' doesn't exist
wp_1_links: Table 'bclover.wp_1_links' doesn't exist
wp_1_options: Table 'bclover.wp_1_options' doesn't exist
wp_1_postmeta: Table 'bclover.wp_1_postmeta' doesn't exist
wp_1_terms: Table 'bclover.wp_1_terms' doesn't exist
wp_1_term_taxonomy: Table 'bclover.wp_1_term_taxonomy' doesn't exist
wp_1_term_relationships: Table 'bclover.wp_1_term_relationships' doesn't exist
wp_1_termmeta: Table 'bclover.wp_1_termmeta' doesn't exist
wp_1_commentmeta: Table 'bclover.wp_1_commentmeta' doesn't exist

What does it mean? How Can I remedy? Should I unenable multisite and try something else?

    Hey Jacob ,

    I hope you are having a nice day so far!

    Did the system create the default site tables? They would look like the aforementioned ones, but without the "_1" part in the name.

    It sounds like the system is confused about the main site tables and is instead looking for subdomain tables, which are probably not created.

    I would also look in the wp-config.php file for the following two lines:

    define( 'SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
    define( 'BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );

    I am not sure how GoDaddy approaches multisites, so it would be best to ask them about this.

    That being said, you are always welcome to post here with updates and further questions. We are happy to help!

    I wish you an awesome day ahead!
