Ciao Andrés,

every so often I get the following message in the wordpress dashboard:

We have detected a problem with some tables in the database. Please contact WPML support to get this fixed.

    [language] => it
    [context] => admin_texts_woocommerce_new_order_settings
    [gettext_context] => 
    [domain_name_context_md5] => d3218db82312465bbeae3d2ebc6a624f
    [name] => [woocommerce_new_order_settings]heading
    [value] => Nuovo ordine cliente
    [status] => 0
    [translation_priority] => optional
    [allow_empty_value] => 1

What should I do?

Hola Adriano,

¿Trabajando de nuevo durante los fines de semana? 🙂

Many of the times, this alert is just a false positive and you shouldn't take care of it. For being sure about it:

1. Open your wp-config.php file and look for define(‘WP_DEBUG’, false);. Change it to or just add it:

define('WP_DEBUG', true);
define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );

In this case the errors will be saved to a debug.log log file inside the /wp-content/directory and look for any PHP error related to WPML.

2. If it is not the case, just follow the errata and close the warning:

Does it help?

Un saludo,

Ciao Andrés,

you also work on Saturdays ? in addition to Saturday, sometimes I also work on Sundays.

At the moment the error is no longer displayed, so I do not know whether to worry or not. In the link that you kindly gave me George writes that it is a very serious problem and that it should have been corrected with WPML 4.0.6:
but now I have version 4.0.7 and the problem reoccurs.

Un saluto,

Ciao Adriano,

Yes, there late days have been pretty busy, but soon I'll take some vacations.

I'm glad to know that the message has disappeared. Now, about George's comment, you are totally right but there is a difference, that user is mentioning a duplicate of a Primary key which points to a database corruption while is not the case:
Duplicate entry ‘0’ for key ‘PRIMARY’

Does it answer your question?

Ciao Andrés,

now the problem is gone, I hope it will not be repeated in the future.
