I'm getting mysql errors suggesting that my host's use of strict mode is a problem (with an addon). The host wants mysql strict mode on their DB server. Can I override strict mode for my EE sessions? And if so, how?
I see that codeigniter has a database config setting
$db['default']['stricton'] = FALSE;
but I'm unfamiliar with how to use it. Simply putting
$db['Expressionengine']['stricton'] = FALSE;
into system/expressionengine/config/database.php has no effect. The mode still stays "STRICT_TRANS_TABLES,NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION"
The EE codebase includes a conditional with 'stricton' = TRUE within system/codeigniter/system/database/DB.php But its not clear how to invoke that either (or hack an analogous FALSE conditional)
Any ideas appreciated. Thanks.
