MySQL version problems

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.
After heading over to mysqlfreaks for help and finding the forums shut down :( I've been redirected over here.

I'm having a problem with MySQL versions. I run MySQL 5.0.21-community-nt on my localhost for development and my web sites server runs MySQL 3.23.58. Until now this hasn't been a problem.

Having used the following SQL statement on my localhost and having it return correct results.[code]SELECT distinct a.articleid, a.articleauthorid, a.articletitle, a.articlecontent, a.articledate, a.articleenclosuretitle, a.articleenclosureuri, a.articleenclosurelength, u.userid, u.username, u.userstatus, (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM comments WHERE comments.articleid = a.articleid)AS articlecomments FROM comments c, articles a, users u WHERE a.articleauthorid = u.userid ORDER BY articledate DESC LIMIT 0,3[/code] I updated my website to use the new SQL with no luck. My web site's MySQL server gives me the following error: [code]#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax near 'SELECT COUNT(*) FROM comments WHERE comments.articleid = a.articleid) AS articlec' at line 1[/code]

My question is how would I replicate the same results of the above statement for my web sites server?

If anymore information is required just let me know. Thanks in advance.

You can't use subqueries in 3.23 -- you'll need to rewrite as a JOIN.

I'd feared as much. Any ideas on how to do this? I've been trying with lots of variations, none of which give the desired result.

I'll take a look later on tonight... I'm not at a location with access to my sql box.
