MySQL 1075

This error occurs when attempting to create a table with an auto-increment column, but the column is not defined as a key.

How It Affects Your App

MySQL 1075 ER_WRONG_AUTO_KEY can cause an application to fail when attempting to create a table with an auto-incrementing primary key. This can lead to data integrity issues, as the application may not be able to store data in the correct order. Additionally, the application may not be able to access the data it needs, as the primary key is used to identify and retrieve records. This can lead to data loss or incorrect data being retrieved. Finally, the application may not be able to perform certain operations, as the primary key is used to link related data.

How To Fix

1. Check the syntax of the SQL statement that is causing the error. This can be done by running the statement in a MySQL client such as the MySQL command line client.
mysql> SELECT * FROM table_name;
2. Check the table name for any typos or incorrect capitalization.
mysql> SELECT * FROM Table_Name;
3. Check the privileges of the user that is running the query. The user must have the correct privileges to access the table.
mysql> SHOW GRANTS FOR 'username';
4. If the user does not have the correct privileges, grant the necessary privileges to the user.
mysql> GRANT SELECT ON table_name TO 'username';
5. If the user already has the correct privileges, check the table name for any typos or incorrect capitalization.
mysql> SELECT * FROM Table_Name;
6. If the table name is correct, check the database name for any typos or incorrect capitalization.
mysql> SELECT * FROM database_name.Table_Name;
7. If the database name is correct, check the server configuration for any issues.
mysql> SHOW VARIABLES LIKE '%table_name%';
8. If the server configuration is correct, check the MySQL logs for any errors.
mysql> SHOW ERROR LOGS;
9. If the MySQL logs are correct, check the operating system logs for any errors.
tail -f /var/log/syslog
10. If the operating system logs are correct, check the hardware for any issues.
dmesg
11. If the hardware is correct, use an automated database observability tool to monitor and fix the MySQL 1075 in question.
