mysql delete with subquery using a limit

So, you are want to delete entries by using a subquery and the limit and all you get back is something like the following:

This version of MySQL doesn't yet support 'LIMIT & IN/ALL/ANY/SOME subquery'

The solution is a little bit tricky and costs a bit performance but it is working, try the following:

DELETE FROM my_table WHERE IN ( SELECT * FROM ( SELECT FROM my_other_table WHERE my_other_table.condition = 'My condition' LIMIT 0, 100 ) as deleteTable);
