Fixing DB problems in Joomla

Sometimes, this site goes down, and the following homepage appears:

JoomlaDBerror1

The jos_session gets corrupted, a frequent issue with Joomla 1.5.x installations. Luckily, fixing this issue is quite simple, just log into the phpMyAdmin site (usually at the following address: http://www.mywebsite.com/phpMyAdmin) and open the joomla database

JoomlaDBerror2

Locate the jos_session table, then click on Empty to solve the issue.

JoomlaDBerror3

The state of the jos_session table returns to normal, and the Joomla website is back online.
