MySQL 139

This error occurs when MySQL is unable to retrieve the default value for a given function. It is usually caused by an incorrect syntax or an invalid function name.

How It Affects Your App

The impact of MySQL 139 on an application is that it prevents the application from getting the default value for a function. This can cause the application to malfunction or not work as expected, as the default value is necessary for the application to run properly. Without the default value, the application may not be able to perform certain tasks or may not be able to access certain data. This can lead to errors, unexpected behavior, or even data loss. In addition, the application may not be able to run at all if the default value is not retrieved.

How To Fix

1. Check the error log for the MySQL 139 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 for any corrupt tables:

$ mysqlcheck -u root -p --all-databases

6. Restart the MySQL service:

$ service mysql restart
