  • MySQL has gone away . . . what is that?

    Hello,

    I am getting this error now:

    Altering word table

    The script reported errors in the installation of the tables. Only continue if you are sure that they are not serious.

    The errors were:

    Error number: 2006

    Error description: MySQL server has gone away

    I cannot go on from there.


    What does it mean when MySQL has gone away? It is being installed in a Vserver with MySQL. I also called the server company and they do say that there is a database created and it looks good. But I can't continue on with the istallation.

    thanks,
    Daniel

    Open install.php, and change $onvservers=0; to $onvservers=1;

    Then add the line in blue:
    Code:
        if ($onvservers==1 and substr($val, 0, 5)=="ALTER") {
          [color=blue]$DB_site->link_id=0;[/color]
          $DB_site->connect();
          $DB_site->reporterror=1;
        }
    Optionally call up your host and complain to them for adding a MAJOR incompatibility to their MySQL which(IMO) serves no purpose.

      more errors

      Still having problems . . . . now this error pops up:

      Creating table access

      Altering access table

      Creating table admin log

      There seems to have been a slight problem with the database. Please try again by pressing the refresh button in your browser.

      Can understand what can be wrong since I added the changes you required.
