General error: 1364 Field city_id doesn't have a default value

I have upgraded the MySQL from 5.5 to 5.6 and then getting below type of errors.
General error: 1364 Field 'city_id' doesn't have a default value

(I was not getting such type of error, it must come after upgrading my MySQL Version from 5.5 to 5.6)

Solution: It have 3 Solutions

  1. In Your Code (PHP), always set a default value (if no value) before save.
            'name'=>'New user',
            'city_id'=>0, //default value
  2. Create fields with default values set in datatable. It could be empty string, which is fine for MySQL server running in strict mode.
    like below:
    ALTER TABLE `users` CHANGE `city_id` `city_id` INT(10) UNSIGNED NOT NULL DEFAULT '0';
  3. Disable MySQL Strict Mode (Most appropriate)
    Disable it by setting your own SQL_MODE in the my.cnf file, then restart MySQL.

    Look for the following line:
    Change it to:
    Restart the MySQL Service.

  3. Redirect user to new web page and stopped him to access old page(not available page).
  4. If you have updated the contents to new web page, MUST USE 301 Redirects
  5. 301 indicates to both browsers and search engine bots(Google, bing, yahoo) that the page has moved permanently.

    header('Location:', true, 301);exit;
URL start with /old will be redirect to
