I suffered an error that crashed my browser while I was writing to the database on a php/MySQL-driven message board (Not the same as LQ.org is using, but one written by a high-school student in Québec), and now the board doesn't work anymore.
In phpMyAdmin, the "posts" table is listed as "in use"...I'm assuming that I aquired a lock on the db for writing, and then the browser crashed before the lock could be released
Does anybody know how to force that lock to be released? I can't use the db again until it is.
(If it's relevant, I'm using whatever version of MySQL came with Red Hat 8)
