I was running a legacy app on a MySQL 4.0.20 server.
The app queried the server like this "SELECT count(total) as total from
For 4.0.20 the result of this query was an integer.
Running the same query on 4.1.16 returns a much larger Integer and the
Problem is that I CANNOT change the app.
Is there any configuration that you can do to this server so that it
treats the query as it was before?
It is a Fecora Core 4 Linux box with MySQL 4.1.16
I have two options: going back to a 4.0.20 server or fixing 4.1.16 somehow.
Any better suggestions on how to address this issue?
