MySQL 141

This error occurs when a user attempts to set a scale value for a column that is larger than the maximum allowed. The maximum scale value for a column is 30.

How It Affects Your App

This error indicates that the scale of the column is too large for the application. This can cause issues with data storage and retrieval, as the application may not be able to store or process data with a scale larger than 30. This can lead to data loss or corruption, as well as unexpected behavior in the application. Additionally, it can cause performance issues, as the application may take longer to process data with a larger scale. This can lead to a decrease in user experience and satisfaction.

How To Fix

1. Check the error log for the MySQL 141 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 processes:

$ mysqladmin -u root -p processlist

4. Check the MySQL database for any corrupt tables:

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

5. Check the MySQL user privileges for any incorrect permissions:

$ mysql -u root -p -e "SELECT User, Host, Password FROM mysql.user;"

6. Check the MySQL system variables for any incorrect values:

$ mysql -u root -p -e "SHOW VARIABLES;"
