This error occurs when attempting to drop an index that is related to a foreign key constraint. It is a MySQL 1553 error code.

How It Affects Your App

MySQL 1553 ER_DROP_INDEX_FK error occurs when an index is dropped from a foreign key constraint. This can have a significant impact on the application as it can cause data integrity issues.
