MySQL as Case Sensitive

Posted by keith (keith), 9 December 2004
Hi all... especially Graham
(Graham :- Courses in September on MySQL and PHP)

I am confused and need help.

How do I make MySQL case sensitive when I query it in PHP?

Currently if I say .....WHERE abcd='A'

It finds both a and A entries.

In MySQL, queries are case sensitive if a field is defined as being a binary field, and are case insensitive on non-binary fields.  Sounds like you may need to go back and change your field definitions!

(If you really want to store binary data, bu the way, you  use a blob and not a binary type.)
