MySQL Case-Sensitive Query

MySQL queries are not case-sensitive by default. Following is a simple query that is looking for ‘value’. However it will return ‘VALUE’, ‘value’, VaLuE’, etc…

SELECT *  FROM `table` WHERE `column` = ‘value’

The good news is that if you need to make a case-sensitive query, it is very easy to do:

SELECT *  FROM `table` WHERE BINARY `column` = ‘value’
