How It Affects Your App

MySQL 1551 ER_EVENT_SAME_NAME is an error that occurs when an application attempts to create an event with a name that already exists. This error can prevent the application from creating the event, which can have a significant impact on the application's functionality. For example, if the application relies on events to trigger certain processes, the inability to create the event can prevent those processes from running. Additionally, the application may be unable to save any changes made to the event, which can lead to data loss or corruption.
