Description of the problem
If a channel's default guest author is deleted from the system, trying to save the channel settings results in a DB error on MySQL 5.7+

How To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Create channel with default guest author set
  2. Delete default guest author member account
  3. Edit / save channel settings

Error Messages

SQLSTATE[23000]: Integrity constraint violation: 1048 Column 'default_author' cannot be null:
UPDATE `exp_channel_form_settings` SET `default_author` = NULL WHERE `channel_form_settings_id` = 3

Environment Details:

  • Version: 5.0.1
