This error occurs when MySQL is unable to find the log file specified for purging. It indicates that the file does not exist or is inaccessible.

How It Affects Your App

MySQL 1612 ER_LOG_PURGE_NO_FILE indicates that the log purge process was unable to find the log file specified. This can have a significant impact on an application as it may prevent the application from properly logging events or transactions. This can lead to data loss or corruption, as well as a decrease in performance due to the inability to properly track and store data. Additionally, it can lead to security issues as the application may not be able to properly detect and respond to malicious activity.
