Re: ERROR 1005: Can't create table (errno: 150)

For what it is worth, ALTER TABLE has been overhauled in MySQL 5.6. If you disable foreign key checks (SET foreign_key_checks=0), ADD FOREIGN KEY will go through the new API and should issue more meaningful error messages. With the old ALTER TABLE, you can sometimes get some hints from the MySQL server error log.

Best regards,
