This error is often encountered on PHP MySQL content management systems when updating data or filling out a form for submission. It is also seen in WordPress, Drupal, Joomla installations which have broken themes or plugins.

Possible Causes

  • You have a broken software or application. You will need to contact your programmer or developer to fix the issue with the SQL statement in the application or form.
  • If you are using WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or any other CMS, this may be due to broken plugins or addons which you installed.
  • The SQL statement used by the programmer to add or update information to the database is incorrect or contains reserved (column) names.
  • You have entered special characters like ‘ ; ” , etc. which your application is unable to understand. Your software should have automatically detected this and corrected it. Consult with your software developer.
  • You are entering incorrect values into the form. Eg: Entering alphabets where only numbers are allowed.

This error is not related to the software or hardware on the server. It indicates an issue with the coding.
