MySQL 1163

This error indicates that a table cannot store BLOB data types, which are large binary objects. It is a MySQL 1163 error code.

How It Affects Your App

The error indicates that the table cannot handle BLOB data types, which can have a significant impact on the application. BLOB data types are used to store large amounts of data, such as images, audio, and video. Without the ability to store this data, the application may not be able to perform certain tasks, such as displaying images or playing audio or video. This can limit the functionality of the application and reduce its usability. Additionally, the application may not be able to store certain types of data, which can lead to data loss.

How To Fix

1. Identify the cause of the MySQL 1163 error:
SELECT * FROM table_name;
ERROR 1163 (42000): The used table type doesn't support FULLTEXT indexes
2. Create a FULLTEXT index on the table:
ALTER TABLE table_name ADD FULLTEXT INDEX (column_name);
3. Check if the index was created successfully:
SHOW INDEX FROM table_name;
4. Retry the query:
SELECT * FROM table_name;
5. Use an automated database observability tool to monitor and fix the MySQL 1163 in question. Automated database observability tools can help identify and diagnose MySQL errors quickly and accurately. They can also provide real-time insights into the performance of the database, allowing for proactive monitoring and troubleshooting.
