MySQL Question

Change unique key together in mysql

I have in my MYSQL table a unique key and i want to add to it.

UNIQUE KEY `user_id` (`user_id`,`account_id`)


and i want to add another

UNIQUE KEY `user_id` (`user_id`,`account_id`,`pet_id`)

Answer
ALTER TABLE your_table 
   DROP INDEX user_id, 
   ADD UNIQUE KEY `user_id` (`user_id`,`account_id`,`pet_id`)

Note: You won't need the backticks around the column names if you're using mariadb on Linux - in fact it will throw an syntax error 1064/(42000)
