Hello,

In case that you are using Workbench, you can increase the timeout through there: Edit -> Preferences -> SQL Editor -> DBMS connection read time out (in seconds) -> Changed the value to 6000.

If this still does not work, you could try tweaking your MySQL configuration and increasing the max_allowed_packet and the innodb_buffer_pool_size.

For example, you could set them to:

max_allowed_packet=16M
innodb_buffer_pool_size=64M

Alternatively, I would recommend following the steps here on how to tweak MySQL/MariaDB Configuration for Increased Performance and Stability:

Let me know how it goes! Best, Bobby
