  • MySQL server has gone away Error Number : 2006

    Hello community,

    sorry to steal your time, i also used the search function of the board, but got even more confused.

    Being not the brightest computer-bulb, I just open a thread.
    I run a page with a board very little traffic so far. The Forum is online since September 2007, since a few weeks I get that strange error, but only for NEW THREADS, not for replys:

    I am sure I changed nothing in the settings since November last year. Below a copy of the mails I receive for each new post:

    Thanks for your help in advanced, pls keep it simple for me...

    This is a server issue. You'll need to contact your host about this. Here are the reasons for the MySQL server going away:

    Also from the MySQL site:
    Steve Machol, former vBulletin Customer Support Manager (and NOT retired!)
    Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

    Mankind is the only creature smart enough to know its own history, and dumb enough to ignore it.
