Long time since Ive done any functions in MySQL and Im a bit stuck.

From memory Ive got the following:-
DROP FUNCTION IF EXISTS AddUser
DELIMITER $$
CREATE FUNCTION AddUser(username VARCHAR(255, password VARCHAR(255))
BEGIN
	INSERT INTO `users` (`username`, `password`) VALUES (username, AES_ENCRYPT(password,'cryptstring')); 
END;
$$
DELIMITER ;

Open in new window


I thought the issue was with the parameters, however the error is:-
#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'INSERT INTO `users` (`username`, `password`) VALUES (username, AES_ENCRYPT(passw' at line 3

Any ideas, what Im doing wrong?

the other thing is this does not look like a function but procedure

CREATE PROCEDURE AddUser(username VARCHAR(255, password VARCHAR(255))
BEGIN
	INSERT INTO `users` (`username`, `password`) VALUES (username, AES_ENCRYPT(password,'cryptstring')); 
END;

Open in new window


if it is really a function, where is the return clause?

check MySQL Reference
