I can not use InnoDB engine because of some dependency troubles in LuaSQL and PtokaX.
My current query is something like:
DELETE e.*, m.* FROM entries e INNER JOIN magnets m ON m.eid = e.id WHERE e.id = %d
%d is an integer passed by the user. This query works if there is atleast one entry in the
magnets table related to the
But, it fails when the
entries has no dependent row in
magnets table. Can I modify this query to perform deletion from both tables, independent of child-rows in
magnets? Or do I need to first check if a child exists and delete accordingly?
