How to disable MySQL strict mode on cPanel

Strict mode controls how MySQL handles invalid or missing values in data-change statements such as INSERT or UPDATE. This post explains how to disable MySQL strict mode on cPanel.

Strict SQL mode is in effect if either STRICT_ALL_TABLES or STRICT_TRANS_TABLES is enabled:

MySQL strict mode can be disabled by editing the line beginning with sql_mode in the [highlight color=”yellow”]/etc/my.cnf[/highlight] or [highlight color=”yellow”]/usr/my.cnf[/highlight] files.

vim /etc/my.cnf

Add the below entry in it.


Please restart the MySQL service once the above entry added to the MySQL configuration file.

/etc/init.d/mysql restart

Then, test it by running the following command:

mysqladmin var | grep sql_mode

That’s it!
