I encountered this message: "Changed limits: table_cache: %lu (requested %lu)"

The variable should be called table_open_cache instead of table_cache since 5.1.3 (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/server-system-variables.html#sysvar_table_open_cach...)

How to repeat:
Compare error with variables for 5.6

See also #73373.
(Fixed at 5.7.6, but how does 5.5 and 5.6 series?)

Hello Daniel,

Thank you for the report and contribution.
Indeed, this is duplicate of Bug #73373 and which is fixed in trunk.

It's indeed fixed for 5.7. But it is not fixed for 5.6. Please fix this also for 5.6 (and 5.5?) as the table_cache/table_open_cache name was changed in that release already.

I agree with reporter, fix should be pushed in 5.6 as well.

Noted in 5.6.24, 5.7.6 changelogs.

An error message referred to the obsolete table_cache system variable
rather than to table_open_cache. Thanks to Daniël van Eeden for the

    Corrected the variable name in a message from table_cache to table_open_cache.
    This was changed in MySQL 5.1.3. The patch is based on a contribution from
    Daniël van Eeden.
