Cannot login, error appearing on site

Hi I'm getting the following error on the wp web site and I cannot seem to login to the back end or recover my password.

WordPress database error: [Table 'eionb_arvnew.wp_users' doesn't exist]
SELECT * FROM wp_users WHERE ID = '1'

Any thoughts?

Best wishes

Check your database prefix. Make sure it is "wp_".

What change you recently did in wp site?

PHPSmashCode comments:

Login to your phpmyadmin to ccheck it. or just check wp-config.php for the $table_prefix.

/* MySQL database table prefix. */
$table_prefix = 'wp_';


mattp answers:

You may have a corrupted database. Have you got a backup of you database at all? If you have got a backup of the database I would recommend that you try replacing it with the backup copy.
