MySQL Error 1577 on Dreamhost

Recently, when connecting to my MySQL databases on Dreamhost through Navicat, I was greeted with a "1577 - Cannot proceed because system tables used by Event Scheduler were found damaged at server start" error message.

It didn't stop me from accessing the tables actually, so I didn't bother. But today it prevent me from copying tables from one server to another, so I decided to have a deeper look into it.

It seems that it has to do with a mysql upgrade issue. I contacted Dreamhost about that and they told me that they just upgraded their servers to 5.1, and that they needed to be restarted. Which they do for me.

So if you ever run into the same problem, just contact Dreamhost support and they'll fix it for you.
