This behavior may indicate the file has been damaged. To rule this out, please run PHP with another database file. If a new file works without problem, you should run Recovery on the original file and try to open PHP again.
Please let me know what you discover.
Things to keep in mind about Recover:
While Recover almost always detects and fully corrects any problems with your file...
- Recover does not detect all problems
- Recover doesn't always fix all problems correctly
- Best Practice is to never put a recovered copy back into regular use or development. Instead, replace the damaged file with an undamaged back up copy if this is at all possible. You may have to save a clone of the back up copy and import all data from your recovered copy to get a working copy with the most up to date information possible.
