What does --safe-updates option in mysql?

Answer No: 196

It's possible to inadvertently issue statements that modify many rows in a table or that return extremely large result sets. The --safe-updates option helps prevent these problems. The option is particularly useful for people who are just learning to use MySQL. --safe-updates has the following effects:

  • UPDATE and DELETE statements are allowed only if they include a WHERE clause that specifically identifies which records to update or delete by means of a key value, or if they include a LIMIT clause.
  • Output from single-table SELECT statements is restricted to no more than 1,000 rows unless the statement includes a LIMIT clause.
  • Multiple-table SELECT statements are allowed only if MySQL will examine no more than 1,000,000 rows to process the query.
