MySQL 3028

This error occurs when an aggregate function is used in a UNION statement without an ORDER BY clause. It is a MySQL 3028 error code.

How It Affects Your App

The error indicates that the ORDER BY clause is not allowed in the query when using UNION. This means that the application will not be able to sort the results of the query as desired. This can lead to unexpected results and can cause confusion for the user. Additionally, it can lead to data being presented in an incorrect order, which can lead to incorrect decisions being made based on the data.

3. Check the MySQL process list for any suspicious activity:
$ mysqladmin -u root -p processlist
4. Check the MySQL user table for any suspicious users:
$ mysql -u root -p -e "SELECT * FROM mysql.user;"
5. Check the MySQL grant tables for any suspicious grants:
$ mysql -u root -p -e "SELECT * FROM mysql.db;"
6. Check the MySQL system variables for any misconfigurations:
