Locked into "DATABASE REPAIR MODE" once installed....

I installed the multi-db on a new WP-MU site. I did the whole 4096 db's (I am planning something very large) but once installed I had to change a line in Fix-DB-Encoding to the correct location of wp-load.php.

However, once it loaded I always get:

WordPress can automatically look for some common database problems and repair them. Repairing can take a while, so please be patient.

Basically it seems to be locked into repair mode. Anything I can do to avoid this? It seems to cause a lot of issues...

All the best

    Greetings Sean,

    Welcome to WPMU DEV!

    Sorry to see that you are having an issue with Multi DB in which I admit after having done this install a hundred+ times I have never seen this issue to date.

    I do not know why or where you have the Fix-DB-Encoding file since it is not required for the installation to work.

    Actually it is only two files that are needed and one script - db-config.php, db.php, and the script move-blogs.php

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe
