MySQL 1237

This error occurs when a slave SQL thread attempts to replicate a table that is not present on the master.

How It Affects Your App

The error ER_SLAVE_IGNORED_TABLE indicates that the replication slave is not configured to replicate the table. This can have a significant impact on the application as the data in the table will not be replicated to the slave, leading to discrepancies between the master and slave databases. This can cause data integrity issues and can lead to data loss if the master database fails. Additionally, the application may not be able to access the data in the table, leading to errors and unexpected behavior.

How To Fix

1. Check the error log for the MySQL 1237 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 for any suspicious activity:
$ mysqladmin -u root -p processlist
4. Check the MySQL user privileges for any misconfigurations:
$ mysql -u root -p -e "SELECT User, Host, Password FROM mysql.user;"
5. Check the MySQL database tables for any corruptions:
$ mysqlcheck -u root -p --all-databases
6. Check the MySQL database logs for any suspicious activity:
$ mysqlbinlog -u root -p /var/log/mysql/binlog.000001
