MAIN DATA TYPES

TINYINT (1o: -217+128)
SMALLINT (2o: +-65 000)
MEDIUMINT (3o: +-16 000 000)
INT (4o: +- 2 000 000 000)
BIGINT (8o: +-9.10^18)
Precise interval: -(2^(8*N-1)) -> (2^8*N)-1

⚠ INT(2) = “2 digits displayed” – NOT “number with 2 digits max”

FLOAT(M,D)
DOUBLE(M,D)
FLOAT(D=0->53)

⚠ 8,3 -> 12345,678 – NOT 12345678,123!

TIME (HH:MM)
YEAR (AAAA)
DATE (AAAA-MM-JJ)
DATETIME (AAAA-MM-JJ HH:MM; années 1000->9999)
TIMESTAMP (like DATETIME, but 1970->2038, compatible with Unix)
VARCHAR (single-line; explicit size)
TEXT (multi-lines; max size=65535)
BLOB (binary; max size=65535)

Variants for TEXT&BLOB: TINY (max=255), MEDIUM (max=~16000), and LONG (max=4Go). Ex: rVARCHAR(32), TINYTEXT, LONGBLOB, MEDIUMTEXT

ENUM ('value1', 'value2', ...) -- (default NULL, or '' if NOT NULL)

RESET ROOT PASSWORD

$ /etc/init.d/mysql stop
$ mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables
$ mysql # on another terminal
mysql> UPDATE mysql.user SET password=PASSWORD('new_pass') WHERE user='root';
## Switch back to the mysqld_safe terminal and kill the process using Control + \
$ /etc/init.d/mysql start
