MySQL Gotchas – 4.x

MySQL Gotchas

1. This is not an “anti-MySQL” list, although it does contain critical comments;
2. MySQL is continually improving and some of the points listed here are no longer valid for recent versions;
3. This list is regularly updated, but may not always reflect the latest developments (unfortunately I’ve been busy the past couple of months and haven’t had time for the site at all; watch this space ;-). Note to Slashdot readers: this page deals with issues related to MySQL 4.1 and earlier, not 5.0
