    It's because your MySQL server died before it could complete the query. Most likely this is because your backup is too big to process in this manner.

    It is recommended you use MySQL via Telnet to backup your forums. You can find more information about that here. Some of it will not apply but the commands are the same. Just do step 1 to backup your database.
