#61071 new enhancement

Need to display appropriate error messages when the database table is empty or corrupted.

A few days ago, I received a new issue from the client regarding the "Error Establishing Database Connection." Upon investigation, I discovered that this error occurred due to an empty or corrupted wp_options table. After repairing the table, the site functioned normally.

Given that the error message may mislead frontend developers into troubleshooting database connection issues unnecessarily, I recommend implementing a specific error message indicating that the connection is intact but the site is experiencing issues due to a corrupted or empty table. This will provide clearer guidance for troubleshooting.

Please review this suggestion and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you!
