Error 1064 (42000): error in your SQL syntax ... near ' '

Asked 2021-May-29 at 12:33

I'm stuck since a couple days and tried most of the answer given to similar questions on this site.

Before starting I'd like to point out that I am working via ssh and can only edit the code via nano (not my choice...)

My problem is the following:

I am using MariaDB to store the raspberry pi CPU temperature along a camera temperature to plot the temperature evolution. I have an error when trying to insert the values in the data base.

I have the following table in cpu_tempDB

MariaDB [cpu_tempDB]> show columns from CPU_TEMP_TABLE;
| Field       | Type         | Null | Key | Default             | Extra          |
| ID          | bigint(20)   | NO   | PRI | NULL                | auto_increment |
| CPU_TEMP    | decimal(6,2) | NO   |     | NULL                |                |
| CREATED     | timestamp    | NO   |     | current_timestamp() |                |
| CAMERA_TEMP | decimal(6,2) | NO   |     | 0.00                |                |

In my python code I use the following functions:

from gpiozero import CPUTemperature
import mysql.connector as mariadb

# get CPU temperature in Celsius
cpu = CPUTemperature()
cpu_temp = cpu.temperature

# get Camera temperature in Celsius
tempfile = open("/home/pi/allsky/temperature.txt","r")
cam_temp = tempfile.read().rstrip()

# make a new mariaDB entry and retrieve old values
   # open connection
   mariadb_connection = mariadb.connect(host= "localhost", user="pi", password="--Sensored--", database="cpu_tempDB")
   cursor = mariadb_connection.cursor()
   # upload
   sql = "insert into CPU_TEMP_TABLE (CPU_TEMP, CAMERA_TEMP) values (%s, %s)"
   args = cpu_temp, float(cam_temp)
   # fetch
   cursor.execute("select * from CPU_TEMP_TABLE where CPU_TEMP_TABLE.CREATED > DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 7 DAY")
   records = cursor.fetchall()
except mariadb.Error as e:
   print("Error writing cpu temp to mariaDB:",e)
# store data in lists
time_list = []
cpu_temp_list = []

for row in records:

# declare date formatter for plot
myFmt = mdates.DateFormatter('%H:%M')

# generate plot

plt.plot(time_list, cpu_temp_list, 'b-')
plt.ylabel('CPU Temperature [°C]')
plt.title('CPU Temperature evolution over the last 48 hours')

# save plot

I get the following error :

Error writing cpu temp to mariaDB: 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "CPU_temp.py", line 45, in <module>
    for row in records:
NameError: name 'records' is not defined

EDIT: I added a print(sql, args) before the error, here's the console print

insert into CPU_TEMP_TABLE (CPU_TEMP, CAMERA_TEMP) values (%s, %s) (64.27, 58.2)

EDIT 2: added the rest of the code as some of you mentioned that error warning where displayed outside the shown code

EDIT 3: restarted from 0 and now it works... I cannot delete this post unfortunately

You need to put arguments into a tuple:

sql = "insert into CPU_TEMP_TABLE (CPU_TEMP, CAMERA_TEMP) values (%s, %s)"
args = (cpu_temp, float(cam_temp),)

Or to construct a string in-place:

    values (%s, %s)" % (cpu_temp, float(cam_temp),)

Install allsky

PatriotAstro created a video describing the installation steps below. Feel free to check it out. Another video covers the installation on a Raspberry Pi zero with both ZWO and RPiHQ cameras. You will need to install the Raspbian Operating System on your Raspberry Pi. Follow this link for information on how to do it. Make sure you have a working internet connection by setting it through the terminal. NOTE: Version 0.8 added many new settings and changed the name of several existing settings. For example, there are now separate brightness levels for daytime and nighttime, called "daybrightness" and "nightbrightness". Version 0.7 only had "brightness" that applied to both day and nighttime. It's very important that you save a copy of your current settings prior to upgrading to version 0.8 so you can restore them properly. The WebUI from the allsky-portal package uses these new settings so it's also important to update AllSky prior to updating the WebUI. Also note that in version 0.8.3 the default image file created and uploaded is called "image.jpg". The prior "image-resize.jpg" and "liveview-image.jpg" are no longer created. Keep that in mind if you copy the image to a remote web server - it will need to know about the new name. Some users have reported ASI_ERROR_TIMEOUT errors with their ZWO cameras in verion 0.8. Click here to troubleshoot.
Start by installing git if not already there. Open the terminal and type the following: sudo apt-get install git
Now fetch the code from this GitHub page: git clone --recursive https://github.com/thomasjacquin/allsky.git
Then navigate to the allsky directory: cd allsky
Now, run the install script: ./install.sh # PatriotAstro's video shows using "sudo"; that is no longer needed
