I have a table:

table votes (
    id,
    user,
    email,
    address,
    primary key(id),
);

Now I want to make the columns user, email, address unique (together).

How do I do this in MySql?

I have a MySQL table:

CREATE TABLE `content_html` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `id_box_elements` int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
  `id_router` int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
  `content` mediumtext COLLATE utf8_czech_ci NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`),
  UNIQUE KEY `id_box_elements` (`id_box_elements`,`id_router`)
);

and the UNIQUE KEY works just as expected, it allows multiple NULL rows of id_box_elements and id_router.

I am running MySQL 5.1.42, so probably there was some update on the issue discussed above. Fortunately it works and hopefully it will stay that way.

what's your interest
