I need to restore backup from one MariaDB server (version 10.1.23) to another MariaDB server (version 10.1.37). But this version has a much stricter mode by default and does not allow NULL values in timestamp fields and throws the below error when I restore the backup.

1067 - Invalid default value for 'dt'

I try to add this values to *.cnf file in /etc/mysql/conf.d/




show variables like 'sql_mode';
show variables like 'explicit_defaults_for_timestamp';

show changed values of variables but it does not work. Why?

  • Is the dt column allowed to be null in the DDL?

  • Please show us the CREATE TABLE that has dt. Also, what version of MariaDB/MySQL was the dump taken on? And loaded onto?

  • CREATE TABLE check_login` ( id int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, uid int(11) DEFAULT NULL, dt timestamp DEFAULT NULL, bookmaker varchar(255) DEFAULT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (id), UNIQUE KEY uid_bk (uid,bookmaker) USING BTREE ) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;`

1 Answer 1

ALTER TABLE table_name 

This will alter the table with name table_name to set the column dt to nullable.
