Advanced ordering of results in MySQL

Sharing is caring!

We can use “LIKE” in ordering the results in MySQL and Maria DB. “LIKE” is an comparision  that performs matching on a per-character basis.

It helps us to sort our results based upon priority.

For example:

Same goes for “NOT LIKE”.

You can also explicitly specify the order of your result like this.

Everything is awesome.
