This table appears to be corrupt. Is it safe to delete or how can i replace it?

I know it is corrupt because if i move the site with backupbuddy it fails to load the public side until this is deleted. I found this cause in a support thread on this forum.

My question is how can I safely remove or replace it on my current site? I don't want any functionality to break.

After deleting this entry from your wp_options table you will need to verify that it has been recreated (usually is) but if you would like to be safe you can try renaming it first , this should still re create a new one and if it does succesfully then you can delete the old renamed entry.

Before proceeding please do make a full backup of your site and database as I haven't fully tested this on a production site

However at a quick glance, I'm not seeing any issues. The language switcher shows up on the site and everything seems to be working, but I must warn of extra caution simply because making changes to the database can sometimes cause other problems.
