in this article I will share with you how to resolve General error: 1205 Lock wait timeout exceeded error in MySQL. simply follow the step and resolve this issue.

You should consider increasing the lock wait timeout value for InnoDB by setting the innodb_lock_wait_timeout, default is 50 sec

first run the following Query in your MySQL

mysql> show variables like 'innodb_lock_wait_timeout';
| Variable_name            | Value |
| innodb_lock_wait_timeout | 50    |
1 row in set (0.01 sec)

 You can set it to a higher value in /etc/my.cnf permanently with this line


and restart MySQL. If you cannot restart MySQL at this time, run this:

SET GLOBAL innodb_lock_wait_timeout = 120; 

You could also just set it for the duration of your session

SET innodb_lock_wait_timeout = 120;

i hope this will help you.
