I ran into an interesting bug/fact today while messing around with MySQL 5.5. It seems that in the DDL, you can’t say “Type=InnoDB|MyISAM|Foo” anymore. You have to say “Engine=InnoDB”.
This will break your propel:build-all , or propel:build-all-load .. or if you manually try to execute the sql from data/sql/*. You’ll get the following error:
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘Type=InnoDB’ at line 11
This issue is resolved in Propel 1.5.0, but I’m not sure when Symfony will include that in the Symfony 1.4 series.
To fix this issue, all you need to do is edit one file:
Line 156, change it to say: $script .= “Engine=$mysqlTableType”;
Hope this helps anyone else using Propel, Symfony and MySQL 5.5
