1292 Incorrect datetime value for column 'updated_at'


I've created a table in Laravel with standard datetime columns:

Schema::create('lists', function (Blueprint $table) { $table->bigIncrements('id'); $table->string('name'); $table->string('ref'); $table->string('provider'); $table->timestamps(); $table->softDeletes(); $table->unique(['provider', 'ref']); });

When I try to do a simple record creation with Eloquent:

List::updateOrCreate([ 'provider' => 'test', 'ref' => 'S4d3g' ], [ 'name' => 'Plan' ]);

I am given this message (which is a raw console output, so ignore the lack of quotes):

SQLSTATE[22007]: Invalid datetime format: 1292 Incorrect datetime value: '2020-03-08 02:25:07' for column 'updated_at' at row 1 (SQL: insert into `lists` (`provider`, `ref`, `name`, `updated_at`, `created_at`) values (test, S4d3g, Plan, 2020-03-08 02:25:07, 2020-03-08 02:25:07))

Running the query manually on the database as raw SQL also doesn't work:

insert into `lists` (`provider`, `ref`, `name`, `updated_at`, `created_at`) values ('test', 'S4d3g', 'Plan', '2020-03-08 02:25:07', '2020-03-08 02:25:07')

I'm using MySQL 5.7.

Inexplicably, if I change the date to anything other than 2 AM, it works:

insert into `lists` (`provider`, `ref`, `name`, `updated_at`, `created_at`) values ('test', 'S4d3g', 'Plan', '2020-03-08 01:25:07', '2020-03-08 01:25:07') insert into `lists` (`provider`, `ref`, `name`, `updated_at`, `created_at`) values ('test', 'S4d3g', 'Plan', '2020-03-08 03:25:07', '2020-03-08 03:25:07')

What could be causing this bizarre MySQL level dislike of 2 AM on the timestamp?


It appears you are in the US, in a timezone where daylight saving time just started.

Therefore, 2am <em>does not exist</em> today.


March 8th, 2020 - Daylight Saving Time Starts

When local standard time is about to reach
Sunday, March 8th, 2020, 02:00:00 clocks are turned forward 1 hour to
Sunday, March 8th, 2020, 03:00:00 local daylight time instead.

Sunrise and sunset will be about 1 hour later on March 8th, 2020 than the day before. There will be more light in the evening.


DATETIME in MySQL uses a local time (the timezone can be set in a multitude of ways) and in your case it's probably <em>your</em> local time, which is why you run into this issue. If you actually meant <em>UTC</em>, you'd have to set the timezone to UTC first using SET time_zone = "+00:00" or by setting the correct global configuration.

Since your PHP library is generating this (invalid) time, I assume you have a mismatch between the timezones used by PHP and by MySQL.
