I don't use MySQL (Postgres seems to make more sense to me), but I do
use phpbb. The only logical thing I can think of is maybe your phpbb
user no longer has rights to the tables it needs? In a crash, the only
likely thing to have happen with that setup is a database table might
be broken. I believe in MySQL you have to have a grant statement for
each table that a certain user gets access to, so maybe that's what it
is? Not sure...

The only time I ever had a problem, I restored my database and it came
back up, just with a few hours of missing posts.
