This error occurs when an expression is used in the wrong context in a partition function.

How It Affects Your App

This error indicates that an invalid expression was used in the partition function. This can cause the application to fail to execute the query, resulting in an inability to access the data.

max_allowed_packet = 16M
4. Restart the MySQL service:
