In MySQL, how do you fix the safe update mode?

MySQL safe update mode is a mode that can be enabled to help prevent accidental data loss when updating records in a database. This mode will check to see if a record has been modified since it was last read, and if so, will prompt the user before performing the update. This error code happens when safe update mode is enabled and a user tries to update a record that has been modified since it was last read.

Users typically search for a solution by asking about:

  • error code 1175 mysql
  • error code 1175
  • mysql safe update mode

Still not working? maybe try one of these options:

  1. Disable safe update mode:
  3. Update the data you want to change, then re-enable safe update mode:
  5. Use a WHERE clause to specify which rows to update:
  6. UPDATE table SET column=value WHERE column=condition;
  7. Use the LIMIT clause to limit the number of rows that are updated:
  8. UPDATE table SET column=value LIMIT number_of_rows;
  9. Use ORDER BY to update rows in a specific order:
  10. UPDATE table SET column=value ORDER BY column;
  11. Use a multiple-table UPDATE statement to update data in multiple tables:
  12. UPDATE table1, table2 SET table1.column=value, table2.column=value
  13. WHERE table1.column=table2.column;
