Hello, I know this post is 2 months old, but I'm stuck with the same question, what I don't get is the fact I test my queries inside Mysql Workbench, both work (with offset and whitout) and that still doesn't work here...

As you I typed this :

SELECT * FROM actors LIMIT 200 OFFSET 100;

and I've as well tested this way

SELECT * FROM actors LIMIT 100,200;

If you could enlight me on the way you solved it, you stated by changing one digit, but which one ? And above all, why would I have to change any digit ? Because It looks good to me to type the queries as we did !

I'm probably being that silly sausage ;)

Thank you !

EDIT: Well, after taking a little rest, and getting back on the exercise, I've found immediatly the answer, and I understand now why you told that was a problem with one digit.

The answser is:

SELECT * FROM actors LIMIT 100,100;

Simply logical. As we start counting at 101 and we need to 200. that was obvious.
