MySQL 1849

This error occurs when attempting to rename a foreign key in MySQL, as this operation is not supported.

How It Affects Your App

MySQL 1849 ER_ALTER_OPERATION_NOT_SUPPORTED_REASON_FK_RENAME indicates that the application is attempting to rename a foreign key, which is not supported by MySQL. This means that the application will not be able to rename the foreign key, and any changes to the foreign key will not be reflected in the application. This can lead to inconsistencies between the application and the database, and can cause errors when attempting to access data from the database.
