MySQL error: MySQL Server has gone away

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -


Hi TechyV,

Whenever I try to connect through filezilla, I get the following error message that informs me of,

“Mysql error: MySQL server has gone away”

 At the moment my site along with my ‘phpmyadmin’ get down with errors like this. A few days earlier I changed the tables in the database of mine.  In Mt .Inc files (IE, PHP code), I just added some more. Since then it is troubling me.

Is there any way to get rid of it?

Thanks for the solution.

MySQL error: MySQL Server has gone away


Hi There, This is a common error message in MySQL and this could be happening for several reasons. I don’t think this is happening for the changes you have made. Check to see what the default timeout value is when you start MySQL. You can change it by changing the “wait timeout variable”. This is because the default timeout value is 8 hours and if nothing happens in this time the server will automatically stop the connection.
