MySQL5 Problem while creating new user – SQL Error (1133): Can’t find any matching row in the user table
When we use GUI tools like HeidiSQL with MySQL Windows binaries – setup from MySQL.com might be creating issues like these. Because recently faced errors #1364 and #1133 both became visible while I did clean install of MySQL by downloading Windows Installer for MySQL 5.5.8 from MySQL.com and not while using it with MySQL as part of some WAMP package.
MySQL 5.5.8 – Problem while Creating new User (SQL Error (1364): Field ‘authentication_string’ doesn’t have a default value)
I have just downloaded and setup MySQL 5.5.8 community server for Windows (32bit Installer) from MySQL official downloads. After downloading while I tried connecting it with HeidiSQL 5.x I got following error “Problem while Creating new User (SQL Error (1364): Field ‘authentication_string’ doesn’t have a default value)”.
Back in December when I updated my twitter status to announce MySQL 5.5 general availability, I was very happy at that moment. It was the first major and much awaited release of MySQL after Oracle – the database giant acquired Sun (and so MySQL). Though MySQL 6.0 is not an active project right now and there are many strategic changes after Oracle’s acquisition of Sun for MySQL’s development road-map, but as a AMP developer it was news to be happy about.
Parallels Virtuozzo Container is the para-virtualization technology. It means that it creates virtual environment by splitting your operating system resources without actually installing another operating system over the host-operating-system. So basically unlike other common virtualization solutions it does ask you to install another operating system on the host. It will let you create containers, which will use the same source of your host operating system and they will be ready in few seconds to couple of minutes depending upon the configuration (templates) you choose.

Last week one of my friend called me up as he got stuck when he has to print data table vertically. Yes vertical table, it means that you want your data to print from top to bottom and not left to write, which is standard conventional way to generate html table.
