This error indicates that a foreign key cannot be added to a virtual column. It is a MySQL database error code 3174.

How It Affects Your App

MySQL 3174 ER_CANNOT_ADD_FOREIGN_BASE_COL_VIRTUAL prevents the addition of a foreign key to a virtual column.

How To Fix

3. FLUSH PRIVILEGES; This command will flush the privileges, ensuring that the new value of the max_connect_errors variable is applied.
