I'm trying to add a json column in MySQL db by running:
class AddStatisticsToPlayerStatistic < ActiveRecord::Migration[5.0] def change add_column :player_statistics, :statistics, :json end end
But I'm getting this error when I try to run rake db:migrate
Mysql2::Error: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'json' at line 1: ALTER TABLE `player_statistics` ADD `statistics` json
Does anyone know how to add a JSON column in MySQL Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.5.53. properly?
Thanks in advance!
