Please see the docs for this error: Resolving a misconfigured MySQL database with Ghost - Ghost Developers

You will also need to switch to MySQL 8 as MariaDB is not a supported DB.

Thanks for your answer. I will take a look at switching, as the Bad Field Error is not due to ANSI :


Switched to mysql8, issue disappeared, thanks a lot !
