MySQL 1761

This error occurs when a foreign key constraint fails due to a duplicate key value being found in the child table, along with additional information about the child record.

How It Affects Your App

This error indicates that a foreign key constraint has been violated. This means that a record in the child table is referencing a non-existent record in the parent table. This can cause data integrity issues and can lead to data inconsistency. It can also cause the application to crash or malfunction if the application is not designed to handle this type of error. In addition, it can lead to data loss if the application does not have a backup system in place.
