Problems with MySQL 5.7.8-rc. In different situations, when you run queries or connect to mysql database you get an error:


ERROR 3167 (HY000): The 'INFORMATION_SCHEMA.GLOBAL_VARIABLES' feature is disabled; see the documentation for 'show_compatibility_56'


To resolve the problem you must set global variable show_compatibility_56 = ON.

Connect to musql database via console and execute the command:

SET GLOBAL show_compatibility_56 = ON;

Q: How to keep variable show_compatibility_56 always ON even if you restart the server?

A: You need to save this variable setting in your configuration file my.ini for windows server and my.cnf for linux.

Q: Can you tell me please where can I find the my.cfg file (means the path)?

A: It can be found on one of these routes. execute the command:





show_compatibility_56 is deprecated because its only purpose is to permit control over deprecated system and status variable information sources that will be removed in a future MySQL release. When those sources are removed, show_compatibility_56 will have no purpose and will be removed as well.
