#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax

sql syntax error error in syntax 1064 error

The error 1064 occurs due to MySQL version mismatch. Different versions have different reserved words, which, if they are used by a previous version, causes the error to occur.

The simplest and most effective solution for it is the following: when using phpMyadmin (accessible from your Control Panel), select the "compatibility mode" & select the target database version from the drop down box. That's it! You shouldn't get the same error again.
