Hey there,

You would want to make sure that your /etc/my.cnf file included the line of max_allowed_packet=100M. You would want to restart MySQL and if you were importing a new database, you would also need to include a –max_allowed_packet flag.


  1. mysql --max_allowed_packet=100M -uroot -p db_name < db_export.sql

Happy coding,
