MySQL Triggers


Do you allow the SUPER privilege on MySQL 5.x.x so I can use triggers ?


Sorry, no. This requires MySQL root of the server. If you try, you will get the error "Access denied; you need the SUPER privilege for this operation ".This means we do not allow triggers, even though they are supported in MySQL 5.x.x.

For a potential work-around to use MySQL trigger, please see
