I would appreciate any assistance I can receive.
While following the instructions provided in chapter 17 to create the users table for the forum2 database (page 553), I had encountered the following error:
CREATE TABLE users (
-> user_id MEDIUMINT UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
-> lang_id TINYINT UNSIGNED NOT NULL,
-> time_zone VARCHAR(30) NOT NULL,
-> username VARCHAR(30) NOT NULL,
-> pass VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
-> email VARCHAR(60) NOT NULL,
-> PRIMARY KEY (user_id),
-> UNIQUE (username),
-> UNIQUE (email),
-> INDEX login (username, pass)
#1071 - Specified key was too long; max key length is 1000 bytes
Some additional information:
Currently using paid hosting.
My database character set is: utf8mb4
My database collation is: utf8mb4_unicode_ci
All tables use: InnoDB.
I would like to please know how this error can be resolved to continue proceeding with the chapter.
Enjoying the book!
