MySQL 1080

This error occurs when MySQL is forced to close a connection due to an internal error. It indicates that the connection was terminated abnormally and that the server is unable to continue processing the request.

How It Affects Your App

MySQL 1080 ER_FORCING_CLOSE can cause an application to crash or become unresponsive. It can also lead to data loss or corruption, as the connection to the database is abruptly terminated. This can cause the application to become unstable and unreliable, leading to a poor user experience. Additionally, it can cause the application to become vulnerable to security threats, as the connection to the database is no longer secure.

How To Fix

1. Check the MySQL error log for more information about the error:
$ tail -f /var/log/mysql/error.log
2. Check the MySQL configuration file for any misconfigurations:
$ cat /etc/mysql/my.cnf
3. Check the MySQL process list to see if any processes are running that shouldn't be:
$ mysqladmin -u root -p processlist
4. Check the MySQL user table to see if any users have been added that shouldn't be:
$ mysql -u root -p -e "SELECT * FROM mysql.user;"
5. Check the MySQL privileges table to see if any privileges have been granted that shouldn't be:
$ mysql -u root -p -e "SELECT * FROM mysql.user_privileges;"
6. Check the MySQL tables to see if any tables have been created that shouldn't be:
$ mysql -u root -p -e "SHOW TABLES;"
