      ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near 'CURRENT_TIMESTAMP' at line 1

      > ALTER TABLE attachment_version MODIFY COLUMN created_at timestamp DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP;

      Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.02 sec)
