how to disable mysql strict mode

Disable Strict Mode via my.cnf

Disable it by setting your own SQL_MODE in the my.cnf file, then restart MySQL.

SQL_MODE should be something like this sql_mode=NO_ZERO_IN_DATE,NO_ZERO_DATE,ERROR_FOR_DIVISION_BY_ZERO,NO_AUTO_CREATE_USER,NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION

most important is to add NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION along side other values.

after changing the mode, now restart mysql
