MySQL 1475

This error occurs when a field separator is ambiguous and could be interpreted as part of a field value.

How It Affects Your App

The impact of MySQL 1475 ER_AMBIGUOUS_FIELD_TERM on an application is that it prevents the application from executing a query due to an ambiguous field term. This can lead to the application not being able to access the data it needs, resulting in an inability to perform the desired operations. This can cause the application to crash or become unresponsive, leading to a poor user experience. Additionally, it can cause data integrity issues if the application is unable to access the data it needs.

How To Fix

1. Check the error log for the MySQL 1475 error:
$ tail -f /var/log/mysql/error.log
2. Check the MySQL configuration file for the max_allowed_packet setting:
$ grep max_allowed_packet /etc/mysql/my.cnf
3. Increase the max_allowed_packet setting to a higher value:
max_allowed_packet = 16M
4. Restart the MySQL server:
$ sudo service mysql restart
5. Check the error log again to make sure the MySQL 1475 error is gone:
$ tail -f /var/log/mysql/error.log
6. Use an automated database observability tool to monitor and fix the MySQL 1475 in question. Automated database observability tools can provide real-time insights into the performance and health of your database, allowing you to quickly identify and fix any issues that arise.
