  • Reading the docs, it seems like it's just for creating the triggers, not executing them.

    • Sorry, but not quite correct. It's a pain to read through, but this is the killer:

      At trigger activation time, privileges are checked against the DEFINER user. This user must have these privileges:

      • The TRIGGER privilege. (SUPER prior to MySQL 5.1.6.)
      • The SELECT privilege for the subject table if references to table columns occur via OLD.col_name or NEW.col_name in the trigger definition.
      • The UPDATE privilege for the subject table if table columns are targets of SET NEW.col_name = value assignments in the trigger definition.
      • Whatever other privileges normally are required for the statements executed by the trigger.

      That was not fun to track down, but there ya go.

      • Ugh, MySQL is _so_ lame.

      • Have you tested that? .. as it still seems to apply the privilege tests to the user that defined the trigger, rather than the user invoking it.


        @JAPH = qw(Hacker Perl Another Just);
        print reverse @JAPH;
      • Like Teejay said, DEFINER

        Are you seeing something we're missing?

  • We are using MySQL 5.0 heavily and I can assure you that running triggers does NOT require SUPER privileges. There are plenty of reasons to hate MySQL, but this is not one of them :-)
  • you can use sandbox to create and 5.1 db and then access it with an port number something like localhost:10000 [] also everything on your host remains unchanged the other mysql will run on 3306 as usual ps: i wish we had in firebird something similar to sandbox it's easy to create an script that starts multiple/versions/db servers
  • The only host I found so far to support mysql triggers on shared packages is at [url=][/url]. I hope more will come. This is probably because hosting providers wait for plesk or cpanel to support such versions of PHP/MySql and those two are moving slower than anything else. PHP 5.2.9 came out recently and a lot of bugs were fixed yet nor cpanel or plesk supports this version.
