We are doing impact analysis on the new type AFTER convert from Oracle 10g/12c to to MariaDB, any information on

1) Is there any impact on the change of type ( in terms of RAM, disk space and CPU) ?
2) What to do to get ride of the impact?
3) URL for the proof?

For the following type conversion:

NUMBER(10,0)  and NUMBER (9,0) convert to BIGINT
NUMBER(3,0) convert to SMALLINT
NUMBER(1,0) convert to TINYINT.
NUMBER without () (e.g. NUMBER) to DOUBLEe
      VARCHAR2() to VARCHAR()  (e.g. VARCHAR2(1 CHAR) will become VARCHAR(1). VARCHAR2(100 CHAR) will become VARCHAR(100)

right now planning the last stage of oracle to mariaDB migration and here are some BI related question, hope you all can give a hand.

On the change on the DB and data column type. (e.g. Oracle varchar2() to MariadB varchar()),  usually any impact on GUI and report design?
Hello experts,

I am working on an expert system which will run through a website I have in development.  The purpose is to provide step by step instructions based on Project by state, so no matter who is working the queue, we end up with a consistent build.  So this question is based in OOP theory and how to bring about a result (storing the data in a database...  Because if you can put it in there...  I can retrieve it... hopefully, lol.  So I am going to use a dumb made up example so I don't give up the secret sauce.  So lets go with cake.   Bob is our baker, and Karen is our master chef.  Karen has checked with each state law on how to make each specific kind of cake that we have seen, and we need to consider a default outcome for recipies she hasn't seen.

So Bob looks in his queue and sees a ticket to make a Strawberry Cake in Colorado.  Karen has predefined that Bob need to 1) pour batter A  into 2 baking pans, 2) bake the cakes 3) ice the middle using frosting C and then 4) send to shipping.  Bob see's the "preflight" instructions and follows them diligently.   Bob once again looks in his queue and sees a ticket for a Strawberry Cake in Hawaii  (State law says we have to use batter B (gluten free)).  Karen has predefined that Bob need to 1) pour batter B  into 2 baking pans, 2) bake the cakes 3) ice the middle using frosting C and then 4) send to shipping.  

A ticket can have up to 3 cakes on it ever,  And Karen needs to be notified whenever there is a request …
I am using WAMP on my Windows 10 machine.

I am having the same issue on my Ubuntu machine.

When I add to many columns to my database I get an error:

Rebuild database fault: PDOException: SQLSTATE[42000]: Syntax error or access violation: 1118 Row size too large. The maximum row size for the used table type, not counting BLOBs, is 65535.

Open in new window

I have gone to the my.ini file and added:

I have also tried increasing my log file size to 512 and the buffer size to 2048 just to see. Still no change.

Any time I try and add another column in mysql I get the error.
Can you look up a subsequent record like the below using a MySQL trigger and omitting the ID lookup SELECT statement in the original query?

INSERT INTO _skills_emp_link (skill_id, emp_id, region_id)
                         VALUES (‘2.’, ‘4’, (SELECT region_id FROM employees WHERE employee_id = ‘4’));

Open in new window

Basically I would like to issue a Query like:
 INSERT INTO _skills_emp_link (skill_id, emp_id) VALUES ('2', '4') 

Open in new window

and a BEFORE or AFTER INSERT trigger to take the emp_id 4 (entered in the initial query) and look up the attributed region_id and append the SQL query so that the FK constraints work properly.
This is related to MySQL.
I ran a command --> mysqldump -u -p DBNAME > [Path of .sql file],
After running this command , I ran --> mysql -u -p DBNAME > [Path of .sql file].
After this, my Table data got overwritten and my Table is blank. Only the table structure remains. Please suggest how to bring back the Table original Data.
MySQL form POST to database.  When INSERT INTO query is performed on what seems are random basis (or perhaps it is based on content of the data POSTed from the text area on the from, the data saved to the field in the database sometimes has duplicate information.  For example, if there are multiple sentences, a portion of one of the sentences will be duplicated in the paragraph of text.  Not sure what would cause something like this.  When using the form we can edit and try to save the same text several times, usually it will eventually save correctly.  I have several other application/database pairs on the same web/mysql server and don't seem to experience this issue.  So I am assuming the problem is coming from this specific website.

Here are some code snippets:

from the PHP form:

Hi,  I'm creating a PHP and MySQL web application for a client. I'm a fairly new web developer.
Is there a way to add page titles and meta tags dynamically? It's a small application. I'm not using a Framework.
I saw a couple of possible solutions on google, but am not sure what the easiest and most efficient way of doing it would be.

Possible Solution #1, add variables in my header.php page and then on each respective page for example about, contact etc... add those variables above the include statement.
Here is my header.php code:


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
	<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
	<meta charset="utf-8">
	<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

I have a problem updating a mysql table entry.  I copied and pasted the format I've used for years to update tables, but for some reason it is not working here.

My query reads, $queryUpdate1=mysql_query("UPDATE material SET _3Quan = '$_3Quan' WHERE file='$file'") or die('Query failed1: '.mysql_error());

The variable $_3Quan has a value of 100, but when the material table is updated, it returns a value of 0 to the _3Quan field.  Prior to update the value was 95.

Can you help me figure out what I'm doing wrong here?

I’m creating a web application using PHP and MySQL. I’m looking for a simple solution to be able to accept online payments. If I was using a CMS like WordPress or Joomla I know for WordPress there’s WooCommerce, I could just use a Plugin, But I’m not. Again, if I were using Magento or Presta Shop or something but again I’m not, I’ve coded everything from scratch. What’s unique about my clients situation is that he will only be selling one product, so it’s not like a big E-commerce store with thousands or tens of thousands of products.
From what I’m learning I believe I’m going to need to use either PayPal or Stripe and I might have to create my own checkout and cart pages but I’m not really sure. Anyone know of a simple solution?

I'm fairly new to php and mysql but I'm creating a PHP and MySQL web application for a client. I have a register.php page with the following form fields:
Contact Name, Phone, Email, Password, Confirm Password, Ticket Holder Password and Ticket Holder Confirm Password, where Users can register/sign up to use the app. Once they do register, they get redirected to admin_login.php page where they can login and get full access to the app and various other pages I've created.

My Problem:
My Password validation functions aren't working and I'm not sure why. I want the passwords to be a minimum of 8 characters, contain one upper and lowercase letter, a number and a special character. I'm using a regular expressions code that I found online. What I want is to validate the Password fields, so if the User enters a password that meets the criteria mentioned above than it should INSERT the data INTO the database, if it doesn't meet the Password criteria mentioned above I want to display an error message saying: "Password must be minimum of 8 characters, contain one upper and lowercase letter, a  number and a special character". I'm new to using php functions and how to call them properly.

This is the code in my functions.php page:



// clean the form data to prevent injections

/* Built in functions used:

function validateFormData($formData) {

I have a VBA frontend system which connects to a mysql backend.

It authenticates on manually created mysql users which are setup to allow access to further databases once authenticated.

I need to investigate offering users to ability to change their own mysql password without having an admin having to do it at command line level.

Obviously im consious of security and need to get some ideas on how to acheive this.

In below scenerio, how mysql master- master replication can be used?

OK so we have an in house marketing database that used to connect to a remote MySQL database on a Linux server. I decided to migrate to a MySQL server on our in house computer that also serves as the domain controller. everything is working fine except when I try to export a CVS.

I need to create a MySQL query that will be run through pHp.
I have 2 tables Record & Donations. The only field they have in common is the "email" field.
The Donations table has fullname, email, donation amount, donation date and year (yyyy).
The Record table has fname, lname, add1, add2, city, state, zip and email.

I would like results:
Want a listing of all the emails from everyone who has ever given, but NOT to include current donations for next year.
The search should examine both tables and remove any duplicate emails.

The 1st part is easy -
SELECT email FROM Donations WHERE  year <> '2019'  ORDER BY `email` asc;

I can get a listing of all the emails in Record that don't have a match anywhere in Donations by using

Select email FROM Record WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT email FROM donations WHERE =  ORDER BY `email` asc;

But I'm not sure that is exactly the right statement and I don't know how to combine the 2 parts.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Dear Experts

I have a question about python and mysql interaction. I have big table which contains column named DATETEXT, which simply contains full datetime in text format, like "Fri, 09 Aug 2013 18:46:10 +0200", I need to convert it to datetime value which is not a problem, but I need to update another column in the same table with this value.

So my question is how to update one columns in table X based on value of another column in table X.

Many thanks

Description of issue:
  • We are attempting to migrate data and continue to replicate from our local MYSQL database to Aurora MySQL. Aurora is reporting that we have successfully completed a migration however when we check the data not all the records have migrated after a certain point. After this point no more of the original records are copied however the database continues to replicate changes after the initial full load. Leaving a gap of missing records.
  • This problem only occurs with tables with BLOB fields. Even though tables with BLOB fields do not full load all records the task reports 100% completion and no tables errored.
  • As stated replication continues as normal afterwards and new rows are inserted.
  • Approx 350,000 records are missing
  • Full LOB mode is enabled with default chunk size of 64.
  • We have set max_allowed_packet and wait_timeout on the target to their maximum values 1073741824 and 31536000 respectively.
  • We also reduced the commit rate during full load to 1000. We found that the default values for these would cause the full load to fail and continually restart.

Source: On site MySQL 5.7.20 Community over VPN
Target: Aurora MySQL 5.7.12 db.r4.large
Replication instance: dms.r4.large, version 3.1.2, 80GB storage
Migration type: Full Load, Ongoing Replication
Network transfer: Over VPN to the VPC
Size of transfer: ~700 tables totalling nearly 50GB

I'd like to print each one of these tickets on a envelope (#10), so I would like to output a single pdf document with 4 pages, one ticket per page. I don't know if it's possible to print my HTML content on an envelope sized 9.5" x 4.125". If you look at the screenshot attached, you'll see I have all 4 tickets on a single page. I want to create a single PDF document with multiple pages, again one ticket per page.
Here is my code I have so far:
// winning tickets pdf
function fetch_data() {  
      $output = '';
      $userID = ($_SESSION["loggedInUserID"]);

	  $sql = "SELECT * FROM participants LIMIT 1";  
      $result = mysqli_query($conn, $sql);  
      while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($result))

I have a form/page that I'm using to book in stock based on a poNumber that generates the stock items linked to that poNumber/supplier. Currently for each line (there may be 10 items for example on order) the user needs to add qty rec'd, qty outstanding, receipted by and delivery note number in the form for each line.

I want to short cut some of the data entry by having a single entry for receipted by and delivery note number but for this to populate the rows for each entry once submitted.

The code I have at the moment is as follows: -

<div class="container">	
	<form class="form" method="post" action="transit_temp.php">	
	$poNumber = isset($_POST['poNumber']) ? $_POST['poNumber'] : false;
	$poNumber = $mysqli->real_escape_string($poNumber);

	$query = 'SELECT * FROM goodsInTrans WHERE poNumber = "'.$poNumber.'"';
				if (!$result = $mysqli->query($query)) {
				= "QUERY FAIL: "
				. $query
				. ' ERRNO: '
				. $mysqli->errno
				. ' ERROR: '
				. $mysqli->error
				trigger_error($err, E_USER_ERROR);
				while ($row = $result->fetch_object())

					<div class="form-group row">
						<div class=""><input type="hidden" 				class="form-control" 	name="data[<?php echo $index; ?>][supplier]" 			value="<?php echo $row->supplier ?>"/></div>
