MySQL Database

Hello Exports,
In the past few weeks, every few days my WordPress MySQL database get empty for some odd reason, what I mean is that I get notification that my site is down, when I check what is going on I find that the MySQL database is completly empty, no tables no errors in the logs nothing. I can get the site up and running very fast by restoring the data dump and restart the MySQL service, but this is not a long term solution. The only error I can find from time to time is that the table cound not be found? I see this error in the even logs.
Here is a few things I already try:
1. Re-install MySQL and wordpress, down this twice once on the old server and one on the new server.
2. Re-build the database and the site.
3. Run Mysql_update, run mysql_db
4. Repair installation several time.
Nothing really helps after  afew days it happen again.
I am corrently running MySQL on the some server, Windows 2008 R2, 64 bit.
MySQL verion is 5.1.56 if i remember correctlly, WOrd Pres is version 3.0.1
Anything I can do to resolve this issue? Can I use wordpress with MS SQL? if yes how?
Thank you

When you install MySQL, do you give 'root' a password and do you remove the anonymous user as recommended?  You should remove all users that have no passwords.  On Windows, there is one and sometimes on Unix there may be more.

Kalmax: I use the MySQL Workbanch to assign the permissions, I am assuming it does the something? as the article you sent me.
Dave: Yes I assign a password and removed the anonymous account, however after the database is gone and the table is empty, when I go to the securty section under MySQL WorkBanck I do see the anonymous account and I cannot use MySQL until I remove it.

Also, do you think there is something in side the tables that might corrupt the database?
Thank you

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

It sounds to me like someone is breaking into your server and possibly re-installing MySQL.
rfinalyAuthor Commented:
OK, So can I found from MySQL logs or other logs if realy a re-install took place?
Dave BaldwinFixer of ProblemsCommented:
Maybe the server logs, I think the MySQL logs may get overwritten but I'm not sure.  Click on "Request Attention" and get the Microsoft Server zones added to your question.  Someone there should know where to look.

I gave the point for both of you, even the solution was completly differente. But thank you for all the help.
