I am adding new users to this table:
create table users ( username char(15) primary key, fullname char(40) not null, email char(40) unique not null, password char(32) not null, created datetime not null, expires datetime default null, lastlogin datetime default null, activated datetime default null )
When a new user is added with a username or emailaddress that already is taken by a user, then I get this error message:
CDbCommand failed to execute the SQL statement: SQLSTATE: Integrity constraint violation: 1062 Duplicate entry 'firstname.lastname@example.org' for key 3INSERT INTO `users` (`username`, `fullname`, `email`, `password`, `created`) VALUES (:yp0, :yp1, :yp2, :yp3, NOW())
Is there a way to catch the exception and handle the error (give user feedback in register form if it was email or username that was wrong), or should I make two queries before inserting the data to check if the username and email address is not taken?
