Howdy, I was implementing something to help 'Customer Service' do administration with a customers session. To do this I created this table, CREATE TABLE Customer ( customer_id CHAR(10) PRIMARY KEY, session_id CHAR(32) NOT NULL, FOREIGN KEY (session_id) REFERENCES sessions(id) ) ENGINE = INNODB; So I am using the 'sessions' table for CGI::Session to store stuff. When I go to flush() the CGI::Session I get this error: Cannot delete or update a parent row: a foreign key constraint fails (`White_Label/Customer`, CONSTRAINT `Customer_ibfk_1` FOREIGN KEY (`session_id`) REFERENCES `sessions` (`id`)) at /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8/CGI/Session/Driver/mysql.pm line 50. Looking at line 50 of the mysql.pm file is this, $dbh->do("REPLACE INTO " . $self->table_name . " ($self->{IdColName}, $self->{DataColName}) VALUES(?, ?)", undef, $sid, $datastr) or return $self->set_error( "store(): \$dbh->do failed " . $dbh->errstr ); So what the replace is supposed to is delete the original row, if there is one, and then insert a new one. Which is causing my problem. Could I recommend instead that you use the |INSERT ... ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE syntax instead? This will not delete a row, which keeps consistency with FOREIGN KEYS. |http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/insert-on-duplicate.html Steve Kirkup -- Steve Kirkup Sr Web Developer 520-881-8101 ext 119

I recommend addressing this in your code, using SQL standard features for foreign key definitions like "ON DELETE SET NULL" and "ON UPDATE CASCADE". You can read about the options here: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.2/static/ddl-constraints.html#DDL-CONSTRAINTS-FK (for PostgreSQL, I realize). Mark

Hi Steve I've checked into SVN a patch as you suggested. $many x $thanx. It will become V 4.32. All tests pass, but we would /greatly/ appreciate you checking the new code to ensure it works as expected. I had to install MySQL to test this. It's V 5.0.51a. Testing revealed a problem with setting the global variable in t/mysql.t, $CGI::Session::MySQL::TABLE_NAME, so I fixed that too. See Changes for details. -- Ron Savage ron@savage.net.au http://savage.net.au/index.html

Ron, Excellent, I had meant to get around to following up your last email, but I was very busy last week. I shall try to get look at it today. Steve Kirkup ron@savage.net.au via RT wrote: Show quoted text

This was apparently released as a fix in 4.33.
