MySQL 1787

This error occurs when attempting to create or drop a temporary table within a transaction when using Global Transaction Identifiers (GTIDs).

How It Affects Your App

This error indicates that a temporary table was created or dropped within a transaction, which is not allowed in MySQL. This can cause unexpected behavior in the application, such as data not being saved correctly or transactions not being committed. It can also lead to data corruption or data loss, as the temporary table may not be properly handled. This can lead to application instability and data integrity issues.

How To Fix

1. Check the error log for the MySQL 1787 error:
$ tail -f /var/log/mysql/error.log
2. Check the MySQL configuration file for any misconfigurations:
$ cat /etc/mysql/my.cnf
3. Check the MySQL process list to see if any processes are running that could be causing the error:
$ mysqladmin -u root -p processlist
4. Check the MySQL user table to see if any users have been created with incorrect privileges:
$ mysql -u root -p -e "SELECT * FROM mysql.user;"
5. Check the MySQL grant tables to see if any privileges have been granted incorrectly:
$ mysql -u root -p -e "SELECT * FROM mysql.grant_tables;"
6. Check the MySQL system variables to see if any variables have been set incorrectly:
$ mysql -u root -p -e "SHOW VARIABLES;"
7. If the issue persists, restart the MySQL server:
$ service mysql restart
8. Finally, to ensure that the MySQL 1787 error does not occur again, it is recommended to use an automated database observability tool. This tool can assist in monitoring and fixing the MySQL 1787 in question by providing real-time insights into the performance and health of the database. It can also detect any anomalies in the database and alert the user so that they can take corrective action.
