MySQL 198

This error occurs when attempting to reset the master database in MySQL, but the database is already in use on another server. It is a warning that the reset cannot be completed.

How It Affects Your App

The impact of this error on an application is that it prevents the user from resetting the master. This means that the user will not be able to make any changes to the master, which can cause the application to become unstable or unusable. Additionally, the user may not be able to access certain features or data that are stored in the master. This can lead to data loss or disruption of the application's functionality. In some cases, the user may need to restart the application in order to resolve the issue.

How To Fix

1. Check the error log for the MySQL 198 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 issue:

$ mysqladmin -u root -p processlist

4. Check the MySQL database for any corrupt tables or data:

$ mysqlcheck -u root -p --all-databases

5. Restart the MySQL service to see if the issue is resolved:

$ service mysql restart
