Request for testers: MySQL leap second issue investigation

Some time ago, when MySQL 5.3 was the new kid on the block, we had some issues with handling of leap second handling and the linked issue below was opened.

It appears this issue may be resolved. Testing with Percona Server (aka MySQL off-brand replacement) seems to work as expected. This indicates that either enough has changed in Textpattern internally since the days of MySQL 5.3 that we’ve worked around it in some way, or it has been addressed somewhere in the MySQL development process.

Here’s the issue:

github.com/textpattern/textpattern/issues/100

We need to determine whether this issue is still valid with current and supported MySQL environments, and we need your help to test something on existing Textpattern sites with an established database. The more wide-ranging the coverage for different versions of Textpattern and MySQL, the better.

Here’s the preflight list:

  • You will need to create a new article, and delete it when you’re done.
  • You will need access to your database tables to check a timestamp associated with the article.
  • You will need to report back with information from Diagnostics (private or anonymised is just fine).

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Create an article with the publish time stamp of: 2010-12-15 11:24:45, as per the linked issue.
  2. Refer to your database and cross-check the article ID’s row in the textpattern table. We need to know the value in the Posted column.
  3. Post your low detail diagnostics here, along with the time stamp reported in your database row.
  4. Delete the article you created.

Like this:

Database Posted time stamp: 2010-12-15 10:24:45

Thank you, Vienuolis!

Edit: it looks like MariaDB 10.1 works fine, too.

Merci beaucoup, Rabah!

That looks like MariaDB 10.2 is OK.

Re: Request for testers: MySQL leap second issue investigation

An interesting test that one, Rabah:

Database server time: 2021-04-13 03:38:53
Server local time: 2021-04-13 07:38:53
Daylight Saving Time enabled?: 0
Server timezone: UTC
Time zone (GMT offset in seconds): Africa/Algiers (3600)

A 4-hour time difference between server and database server (boxes in different geographical regions?), plus 1-hour timezone shift on the server, with no DST compensation = 5-hour difference.

Although the timezone/DST settings on the database server are unknown to Diagnostics (just SYSTEM whatever that means), we can surmise it’s a further hour out (either due to TZ or DST) because there’s a 6-hour difference between the test datestamp 11:24:45 and the stored database datestamp 05:24:45! Uhhh, right?

Talk about brain-taxing, which is why I’m glad Txp takes (some of) this headache away, even if it’s not perfect.

I’m so glad it wasn’t me that struggled to get my head around that…I ended up with pen and paper and I still wasn’t 100% sure my sums were correct!

Re: Request for testers: MySQL leap second issue investigation

Thanks very much, Yiannis & Philippe – very useful.

My gut feeling says we can close the OP-linked issue as no longer relevant with modern MySQL and its cousins.
