I am writing a
drop statement (in phpMyAdmin) to get rid of some unneeded tables in my database. If I run this query against our live database I am not seeing the full drop statement (it is getting truncated after 50 characters). If I run it against a copy of that database I get the full statement returned.
Any ideas why the behaviour would be different?
SET GROUP_CONCAT_MAX_LEN=10000; SELECT CONCAT( 'DROP TABLE ', GROUP_CONCAT(table_name) , ';' ) AS statement FROM information_schema.tables WHERE table_schema = 'dbname' AND table_name LIKE 'prefix%';
