MySQL 1285

This error warns that using a hostname in a MySQL connection will not work. It is triggered when a hostname is used instead of an IP address in a connection string.

How It Affects Your App

The impact of this error is that the application will not be able to connect to the MySQL server. This means that any data stored in the MySQL server will not be accessible to the application, and any queries or commands sent to the MySQL server will not be executed. This can lead to data loss, as well as a disruption of the application's functionality. Additionally, the application may not be able to perform certain tasks that require access to the MySQL server.

How To Fix

1. Check the error log for the MySQL 1285 error:
$ tail -f /var/log/mysql/error.log
2. Check the syntax of the query causing the error:
$ mysql -u root -p
3. Check the query for any syntax errors:
4. Check the table structure for any inconsistencies:
mysql> SHOW CREATE TABLE table_name;
5. Check the table indexes for any inconsistencies:
mysql> SHOW INDEX FROM table_name;
6. Check the table data for any inconsistencies:
mysql> SELECT * FROM table_name;
7. Check the MySQL configuration for any inconsistencies:
$ mysqld --verbose --help
