MySQL 1621

This error occurs when attempting to modify a read-only variable in MySQL. It indicates that the variable cannot be changed and must remain in its current state.

How It Affects Your App

MySQL 1621 ER_VARIABLE_IS_READONLY indicates that a variable is set to read-only and cannot be changed. This can have a significant impact on an application as it may prevent certain operations from being performed. For example, if a variable is set to read-only, the application may not be able to write to a database or update certain settings. This can lead to unexpected errors and unexpected behavior in the application. Additionally, it can prevent the application from functioning properly, leading to a poor user experience.
