I want my create table in MySQL to look like this:
CREATE TABLE Test_Tbl
Create_Date datetime Default UTC_TIMESTAMP()
As discussed in far greater detail in the answers over at dba, this is incorrect syntax here because the function
UTC_TIMESTAMP(); can't be used there. This query fails even at the command line, so upgrading or modifying phpMyAdmin won't help.
The short version of the answer is that since MySQL already stores TIMESTAMP columns as UTC times, this function wouldn't do much in this context. Normally, when you place and retrieve data, MySQL will automatically convert it back to the time zone the client is using. You may also be interested in using some other type such as DATETIME to avoid this automatic conversion.
