Symptoms

When the user tries to connect an external MySQL database, this error will appear in the atlassian-stash.log:

The schema could not be created.

Cause

Stash 2.7 uses READ_COMMITTED instead of relying on the MySQL default isolation level (REPEATABLE_READ) as Stash 2.6 and earlier. MySQL does not support binary logging in the STATEMENT mode.

Resolution

You will need to set the binary logging information in MySQL configuration by following the steps below.

  • As per what is stated on our official documentation:

    If MySQL is using binary logging, configure the database to use a binary logging format of either MIXED or ROW.

     

  • Open MySQL configuration file in your favourite file editor.
  • Below you see the two possibilities for configuring your MySQL server. Add either one of the following lines:

Configuring db server as MIXED
[mysqld]
binlog_format = 'MIXED'

OR

Configuring db server as ROW
[mysqld]
binlog_format = 'ROW'

 

  • Restart MySQL server.
